Google Chrome is the most popular web browser at present. Many of us from students to professionals use Chrome as a daily web browser. However, we face trouble with chrome often. The one issue that puts people in trouble is Err_Cache_Miss error. The error comes with the message “Confirm Form Resubmission”.
So most people have faced this problem. Generally, this error arrives when you are filing a form or inputting data on the website and press the refresh button or back button. Mainly, ERR_CACHE_MISS error occurred when your browser having a caching problem. I can’t say the particular reason behind this error but I have mentioned several conditions when this error shows up:
- Caching problem with a particular website or web app because of some bad coding in that.
- Internet Service Provider(ISP) problem.
- Browser’s bug or corrupted extension.
- Having a problem with your website(Website Owner).
- The error in browser’s “dev tool”.
Before we get started, make sure you have checked your router or modem. Sometimes, long usage of the router can cause such errors. Simply, check another normal website that usually you are using. If you are getting the same error again, then it’s the internet (ISP)problem.
To solve it, reboot the router and then check again the same website. The problem might be solved. But if you’re still getting annoying err_cache_miss, don’t worry. We bring very simple methods that counter your problem in a few seconds.

1. Fix Err_Cache_Miss by clearing browsing cookies
Chrome and other browsers save browsing history and cookies to provide peak performance to the user. Many people forget to delete the history and this data takes up more storage.
Clearing the browser’s history and cookies might solve your problem. Here are the steps to clear the history. You can skip if you already know the process.
- Open the Chrome and press the ctrl+shift+delete button.
- You will get a clear browsing data box.

It’s done. Now check the website on which you are getting the ERR_CACHE_MISS error. The problem should be solved. If not, let’s move to the second method.
2. Update your browser
The earlier version of the browser might contain bugs. So make sure you have updated your chrome browser. If you want to download the latest chrome browser, click here.
Now check if the error is gone after updating chrome. If your browser is updated and still getting err cache miss, then let’s move to the next one.
3.Fix Err cache miss by resetting the browser
Chrome has a bunch of features and settings configurations. Improper browser settings and configuration can cause such errors. You can undo the changes which you have done recently. If you don’t know, you can reset the browser to its default settings configurations.
- Open Chrome and go to the settings.
- Scroll down till the end and you will find an advanced options menu. Click on it.
- Scroll again until you find the reset and clean up section. Click on Restore settings to their original default.
- Click on Reset Settings. Chrome will reset all the settings to their default configuration. Now reopen the chrome and check if the error is gone.
4. Disable Browser’s Cache System
Google chrome provides useful developer tools. But it’s not for normal people. It required coding knowledge to use it. With proper instruction and guidance, it becomes easier to use.
We don’t need to explore the entire developer tool, only just to disable the cache system.
- Open the Chrome and press ctrl+shift+i. The developer tool will open. Then press the f1 key.
- Scroll down until you find the Network subheading.
- Click on Disable Cache (While DevTools is open).
- Once it is done, close this developer tools and refresh the page or reopen the page on which you are getting err_cache_miss error.
I hope the problem might have solved. Most of the browser problems can be solved using developer tools. But if you didn’t get relief yet, don’t worry. Let’s jump to the next method.
5. Check browser extension
A buggy or corrupted extension can cause the err cache miss issue. So it is suggested to check your all installed extension on chrome browser.
Just disable your extension one by one and check the website if the error is gone. This is how you can find a responsible extension for the err_cache_miss problem.
If you don’t know how to find the extension, just copy this “chrome://extensions” and paste into the address bar then press enter. Alternatively, you can use the side menu and go on More tools to open the extension page.
6. Fix Err_Cache_Miss by flushing DNS
Generally, flushing DNS method is for internet-related errors like IP problem, and internet connectivity. But it also solves err_cache_miss problem if there is a problem with your computer network.
Flushing DNS is not complicated. We can do this by entering some commands only. So let’s have a look.
- Press the Windows key and type “cmd” or “Command Prompt”.
- Click on “Run as Administrator”. (If you are using windows 7, then right-click on command prompt icon and you will find administrator option).
- Insert these all commands one by one. (Note that you have to press enter after each command.)
netsh int ip set dns
netsh winsock reset
- Once its done, reboot your computer then go ahead and browse your website. Check if this method helps you fix the err_cache_miss error.
