Hello,


I am running an application using apache 2 and Tomcat 5.0.28.
Apache forwards certain requests to tomcat using mod jk.
I noticed my app would hang when hitting refresh and using Firefox as the browser. Initially I thought it was a problem with Dojo, my js framework, but after testing with a css only html page I noticed the same behavior.


The behavior is as such, testing with the html below. myapp directory is forwarded to tomcat, while root directory is handled directly by apache.


When I hit refresh on tomcat the browser hangs, sometimes on one of the css files, at other times on the html page itself. I see this by using live http headers. On apache the page, including the requests for the css files, are handled immediately.
Again, all this only happens when using Firefox no problems with IE or Opera.


I'm also using mod_expires on the apache server.


Any information on this matter would be greatly appreciated as it renders my app somewhat unuseable on Firefox.


Thanks in advance,
Adam.



Testing on tomcat:










@import "/myapp/styles/undohtml.css";
@import "/myapp/styles/layout.css";




sss





Testing on apache:

@import "/styles/undohtml.css";
@import "/styles/layout.css";

Update:


I've narrowed the problem down to mod_jk. When I access the tomcat server directly, using its port, http://localhost:8080/myapp/testRefresh.html Firefox no longer hangs.


This leads me to the conclusion that this is a mod_jk issue.
I did some searching on the net and could not find other people with similar issues. Does anyone have any experience with this issue?


Thanks in advance.
