Site issues (forum posts not showing) firefox
 
It seems the website has got few issues with the new version that I noticed ever since I updated to it today morning. So far those noticed are:

- When logging in on the main site (http://www.abandonia.com/en/forum) I do seem to be logged in but when I enter the forum there's still the white box with message at the top, for new unregistered visitors. However when I enter the VBulletin version of the forum I am logged in after all. Not a big thing, just that it forces me to use VBulletin forum. Though I do use that one always anyway, others might not (want to).
- After I click on Mark Forums Read at the bottom of the forum, the sub-forums which had new posts / threads when I first entered the forum, stay still marked as not read yet. Same thing happens when I go to a sub-forum, enter the threads with new unread posts, then return to the respective sub-forum or the main forum. It is as if the cookies would not store any changes, though they are activated both as exception for Abandonia and globally.
Re-loading the forum solves the issue, the respective sub-forums become marked as read, so it's also a minor, mainly cosmetical issue.

It's a known "bug" that actually came with Firefox 4.
It's basically that the browser keeps feeding you the cached page rather then to get the actual page.

In order to "fix" this you need to disable http caching.

Go To about:config
(type it where you type in web addresses)

Then search for:
network.http.use-cache

And set it to False.
Now press (ctrl+)F5 or restart your browser and FireFox should be showing you pages AS THEY ARE.
(and not anymore as they were)


Hope this will end the endless repeating of this in the ChatBox. :)

I really recommend it, that problem was quite annoying.
Thanks GTX :)

Disabling http-caching makes sense, but not for people with low bandwidth like myself (2 MBit), as it takes forever to load any site :palm: Does anyone know of another workaround, maybe a possibility to disable http-caching for specific sites?

Use a newer version of Firefox...they are up to 8 now.

I'm always using latest release, so that doesn't help. This bug never occured on any other sites / forum systems I visit, only on abandonia, so I somehow doubt it's a Firefox bug..

The bug is actually that the AB forum url (the default /en/forum one) Does NOT contain any "?" or "&" behind any .php links.

Cause that would auto disables the caching of the forum. :)

It's quite confusing :| I started checking the forums seperately ( abandonia.com/vbullet/ ) because of the caching problem.

Edit: I also tried clearing my cookies and cache, which didn't help. Just for info ;)
