Thanks - I'll check those out ASAP. Good while ago, I compared
about:config of TBB & Fx - not lately. This could be some? design
issue, a bug or something specific to my install. Though I've noticed
it in several TBB versions. I don't extract a new version over top of
old ones. I start w/ fresh profile, prefs.js, etc. What ever it is
carries across versions. Tor is slow enough, but this makes it almost
unbearable & I'm pretty sure it shouldn't be happening. I've GOT to
find the answer.
Hm, that's an tough question. TBB doesn't modify the FF code very
much at all, and the patches are pretty lightweight - they're all
listed here: https://gitweb.torproject.org/torbrowser.git/tree/HEAD:/src/current-patches/firefox
although some of them do deal with caching.
The about:config settings are all listed here (AFAIK):
so I wonder if there's anything in there you might recognize as
causing a problem?
I'm afraid I'm not quite sure that the issue could be, these types of
bugs are pretty tricky to track down. I did want to point you in the
right direction for maybe finding the culprit though.
Question for other Windows users: If you load *pages in TBB* w/ links
(almost no graphics), click a link that opens on the SAME domain - in
the SAME tab, if you hit Back after a few sec (where original page had
virtually NO chance of changing, forcing a reload), does the original
page (that should be in memory cache) reload *almost instantly* - or at
least in < 2 or 3 sec - or does it take a while - *like 5, 10 or more sec?*
BTW, this isn't on https, where you may get a msg saying the browser
will have to resend the request...
If I waited 5 - 15 min to go back in history to the original page, it
might have changed & possibly force refreshing the page, but not in 10 -
30 sec. I see this repeatedly. If very few others see this, it must be
something w/ my setup or system. Perhaps my AV (Kaspersky IS - 2013).
But, AFAIK it wouldn't be scanning pages stored in RAM, just because
HOWEVER, on same box, same AV, same browser (Fx 20) setting of using
*ONLY Memory Cache*, hitting back button one page, happens *almost
