Flush the cache manually under Tools, Options, Advanced, Network, Cached Web Content.

If that doesn't resolve it then you'll need to restart Firefox.
CEOs need to know what they should worry about

Nearly every week during the past few years has featured a headline about the latest data breach, malware attack, ransomware demand, or unrecoverable corporate data loss. Those stories are frequently followed by news that the CEOs at those companies were forced to resign.

Good rule of thumb. Always start with 302s (not cached in browser) first, till you've debugged everything correctly.

To fix your problem, I'd first suggest you visit your page using a non-browser tool, like curl to ensure you've actually fixed the problem at the server level. You'll do this via...

curl -I -L URL

Open in new window


Which will generate the entire redirect chain related to the URL provided to curl.

Can't tell you how many times I've spent a good bit of time chasing a redirect problem, then to realize the 301 was cached on the server side + still serving.

You can also just post your URL here + someone can test it for you, to ensure you've broken the 301 redirect chain correctly at your server side.
