           Summary: https does not reload CSS and Javascript files after a
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 522+ (nightly)
          Platform: Macintosh
               URL: https://core.federated.com/~jim/webkitbug/
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.4
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Page Loading
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: jim at federated.com

navigation instructions on those pages, but it is simply going forward a page,
back, refreshing, and comparing the two times at the top of the file, one of
which is set when the page is fetched, and the other when the associated
javascript file is fetched.

The three files in that directory can be retrieved from
