Strange caching behavior with SSL RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello everybody,

    a specific web application on an IIS 7.5 in our WAN has recently been secured with an SSL certificate. Now we experience constant loading problems of static content when using Internet Explorer 8.

    If you call the application you'll get to a logon screen. The page contains several CSS and JS references, some of them appear to not finish loading or do not load at all, javascript functions such as processing the logon would not execute. This all is solved once you refresh the page. On IIS we noticed loads of 304 responses, however, most of them refer to elements shown correctly by IE (taken from cache).

    The strange thing is, the missing static files are apparently not taken from cache although IIS sent a 304 for them, and... this is only true for SSL. With standard HTTP (port 80) we do not have any problem...

    BTW we don't have any problem with other browsers...

    Ideas anyone? Thank you!
