Firefox quit reloading CSS on page refreshs

hello,

I develop my website on remote. Up to now, when I made a change to CSS, I simply refreshed the page in FF and it would automatically reload the call the CSS files linked to the page.

Today, however, it quit doing so. I have to empty the cache each time before it fetches the CSS again.

Here's the page I'm working on: http://hairlossinsideout.com/hair_restoration/hair_restoration/some_title_here_test 

Could there be something in the code that is telling the browser not to reload the files?

try adding the posted code inside your <head> tag:
<head>
<title>Some title here. Test | Hairloss Inside Out</title>
<meta http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache" />
 
.
.
.
</head>

Open in new window

Hello, I don't have access to the head. In any case, FF never behaved this way before. I would like to find out what has changed in FF, not alter the webpage which I want the user to be able to cache anyway.

It's not an issue, and just a browsers behavior.

If you have some other browser as well, IE7, or Google Chrome, you can check it by changing your CSS, uploading it, and then checking it in these browsers. You'll see that some of them might not show your changes being applied on first Refresh.

Sometimes, Cache in our PC, or Cache in server doesn't display the current changes at once.

Here's the tip, that mostly works, which refreshes the page from Server.

Refresh your page in browser by Pressing Ctrl + F5, [Press and hold Ctrl key and then press F5 key. Release both].

If still, it doesn't display the current changes, do it a few times more.

I hope it will solve your worry.

By the way, do you have any idea what's this "?Z" after every linked css and js files in the head?

Although, you said you don't have access to Head, but still, that thing is new to me...
