Hi there,

I've noticed recently (using Firefox on a Windows XP machine) that the Validator has started aggressively caching the Validation Results.

Making changes locally and then re-uploading the file and hitting the Revalidate button will not produce new validation results (as it did up until recently), and will occasionally display past validation results.

This is true for conducting a new validation of the same web page too (not just using the revalidate button).

Clearing the Cache, Browsing and Download History in Firefox, then refreshing the page will allow the validation to work as expected again.

Apologies if this is actually a Firefox bug - it's the browser I use for all my development, hence validation.

Cheers,
Rob
