    • I’m working on an application that makes use of some embedded IFrame HTML pages that, in turn request some resources (through AJAX), such as JavaScript files. I’m noticing that IE11 ignores any “Cache-Control” headers that you set for these resources inside of IFrames… it seems Edge goes one step further an ignores them in general for XHTTPRequest, IFrame or not. Is this a related known problem?
      I can’t find any help on this, only suggestions on not caching the HTML pages through tags, but this does not fix the problem when loading dynamic scripts inside of the IFrames, that ignore Cache-Control headers.

      Cheers
