Firefox caches

Note to self: Pressing the reload button in Firefox causes the browser to always connect to the server, even for cached items that are still valid. It will, however, only check if the resource is still valid, accepting the “304 not changed” response.

Clicking normally will not connect to the server, while shift+reload will force a re-download in all cases.
