Subject RE: Problem with form based JSP authentication using Firefox with Tomcat
Date Thu, 06 Sep 2007 03:44:42 GMT

Thanks again P,



Yeah I actually already had the meta tags at the top, and modified everything to match your
example exactly. I also tried using separate login and error pages with no noticeable difference.
Here are the http responses to the member page GET. I'm not well versed in this stuff, but
it seems like the cache-control info is ok but it thinks the page has not been modified when
the re-login fails:
