Here is the situation. I have installed FireFox 44+ AND HttpFox addon ( ) that shows which links are loading by FireFox. Using the addon, I can see that FireFox loading lots of links from the cache. How do I completely disable that caching? Things I did:

1. Running FireFox in Private Mode (never remember history)
2. Set cache to 0 in FireFox settings
3. Set some values using about:config
 a) browser.cache.disk.enable > false
 b)  browser.cache.memory.enable > false
 c)  browser.cache.offline.enable > false
 d) browser.cache.check_doc_frequency > 1

Still I can see 301 redirect caching and others issues using httpfox addon. Googled for a few days, but no any suitable solution found! Help?
