IE Bug Bitten

Internet Explorer Cannot Save to Cache error

We had been bitten by another IE bug here with the application we're building. Our customers using IE6 got a message "Internet Explorer can not save to cache", whenever they tried to save an image. Our application is working over https and puts out "Cache-Control: No Cache" headers. These are some ingredients that trigger the "cannot save to cache" bug in lame Internet Explorer 6. After suspecting my own code for a while and changing stuff around to check, I STFW (searched the f* web) and came up with that M$ support page. In case it goes away, here is the info in short:


Workaround for Zope: I added a line to my python script...

REQUEST.response.setHeader('Cache-Control','keepitifyoulike')

this just overrides the header for this one method. It's not perfect, but it works for now.

trouble. Even though I used a workaround on our Server, today the bug bit me again, as likely
customers have the setting that produces the bug again, even afte...
