jplayer in Firefox paly always the same period of streming

Hi all. I have a problem with jplayer and Firefox. I'm using jplayer to play a streaming from SHOUTCast and it works fine both in Chrome and (this sounds incredible) in IE11. But in Firefox if I stop the player, then it'll play always the same piece of stream it had played before. This until I restart Firefox.
How can I programatically prevent Firefox to cache the stream (if it's a caching issue)?

Thanks to all

jplayer and Firefox have always had compatibility issues.  If you do a search for jplayer firefox you will see thousands of pages mostly outlining problems and issues mainly around interfacing issues.

The support for jplayer is pretty poor; they do it through a Google group: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/jplayer which means having to dig around through a lot of junk trying to find usable information. Like most jquery libraries being used by a very small community there is very little, support, community interaction, or quality control.

I wish I could give you more help, but I would never use something that has such a small user base (a little over 6000 in the community according to the jplayer home page).  Perhaps there is an Expert on the site who is familar with it and they will see this question, but the product has such a tiny installed base that it is not likely.

Hi COBOLdinosaur, thanks for your response (there is some smaller nickname I can use ;-)?)
I'm not married with jplayer: it's the first result I found searching for a jquery plugin for audio element. To be more precise; I startd that research because I had the exact same problem using audio element directly and I thought some plugin could solve this behind the scene. So, if you have some alternative to suggest me which involves other plugins, or other technologies or that simply can solve the problem with the audio element in ffx, I'm open to any solution.
It's true I'm charging only a few for this project and for this reason I was looking for a quick solution, but anytime I learn something I earn time for the next project. So, we can leave jplayer an go on to something else.

Thank you, COBOLDinosaur. I found this other plugin which seems to work very fine: http://mediaelementjs.com/
Cheers

That looks like it should be a lot better.  Much more professional and the supported devices matrix looks like it should cover the bases across devices and content type.  It seems better documented and I don't a lot of complaints about it like there is for jplayer.

Plus the development history on github leads me to believe that it is being actively support and extended which is always a plus for web components.
