A site I created in FrontPage is shown updated in IE but not Firefox, on several computers.

I created a web page using FrontPage (no snarks, please) and put it online. IE shows the new, updated web page. However, Mozilla and Firefox show the old web page. I thought it was just a cache problem with me, but I've loaded it on several different computers with the same result. How can I fix this?

Stop using frontpage!


Also, what's the URL?

Is it possibly different filenames? Something like foo.htm vs foo.html? (I only ask because that's exactly the kind of mistake that would send me round in circles for hours).

A link to the page in question, and perhaps to screenshots of the page as it should be might be in order.

To add to adamrice, it could also be that the webserver uses case sensitive file names. Foo.html vs foo.html.

I just figured it out. Sorry I didn't put a link to the page, but I didn't want to get destroyed on MeTa.

I had some imbedded flash animation. Apparently IE and Firefox use different ways of finding out what the file is.

IE was looking for the "param name" and Firefox was looking for the "embed name" on the flash objects.

Thank you for all the suggestions. It seems I always wait a few hours to ask for help and then I figure it out ten minutes later.

And I will stop using FrontPage.
