Launchpad uses https and I guess it allows caching because form data is 
retained on back/forward there.  I don't see why firefox can't just say 
to hell with the headers and cache the page in ram ( only ) anyhow. 
Maybe only use the cache in the case of back/forward, but go ahead and 
fetch the page again if you enter the url or follow a link?
