OK, I admit this problem is odd. I'm just trying to understand why Internet Explorer is behaving the way it is. I realise that logic may not apply here :)
- I have Internet Explorer 6 (Sp1) running on Windows 2000.
- The Internet Explorer option "Do not store encrypted pages to disk" is checked (enabled).
- The temporary internet files folder is empty.
- TEMP and TMP environment variables are set to valid folders.
- I'm connected to a web server over SSL.
- The web server is serving a page over SSL with the HTTP cache-control header set to "no-cache, no-store".
I was expecting the "view source" command to be greyed out in this circumstance (as it is on another machine).
But it works. When I "view source", I get an entry in the Temporary Internet Files folder with an "internet address" property of "view-source:https://myserver/...." and the content of the page. I wasn't expecting that.
I can't understand why one machine is different to another in this regard. Obviously there is some environment/setup difference, but I can't track it down.
Anyone have any bright ideas?
