    Firefox Document Expired

    My web pages are built with JSP + javascript + AJAX, so a little dynamic when loading a page (it is NOT a static HTML text page).

    As a common practice, when users visits my website, they can click on a hyperlink to open another webpage. When they want to go back, they can click the browser's BACK button that will bring them back to where they were.

    What happened to the firefox is that when its default CACHE runs out, it will display:

    Document Expired
    This document is no longer available.
    The requested document is not available in Firefox'x cache.
    [Try Again]

    The general solution is that I can go to the Options page to either increase the CACHE limit ot clean up the CACHE.

    But for a public user, they either do not know what to do or assume that my website has problem!

    Please offer some suggestion to solve this problem such that regardless the caching, the browser's BACK button (or script window.history.back() will always bring it back to the previous page.




    I have tried:

    <meta http-equiv="Cache-Control" content="no-cache, no-store, must-revalidate" /> -->
    <!-- <meta http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache" /> -->
    <!-- <meta http-equiv="Expires" content="0" /> -->

    "document expired" usually happens when you post a form or use JS to document.write() the current page, etc.

    Here are a few discussions on why this happens:
