ERR_CACHE_MISS: How to fix?

ERR_CACHE_MISS is a browser-specific error, which is caused by a faulty installation and configuration, browser cache, inappropriate extensions, and similar issues. It says “Resend Form Resubmission”, which means that the site that the user chooses to access requires repetitive data submission.

In most cases, the ERR_CACHE_MISS error disappears after restarting the browser or updating to the latest version available. However, if that does not help you, you may need to do some tricks, including clearing your cache, browser history, resetting your default settings, or resetting your network settings. You will be able to find instructions on how to perform each of the ERR_CACHE_MISS fixes below.

If after all of you can not fix the ERR_CACHE_MISS error, try running the Internet Connections Troubleshooter and checking whether the system has detected any problems. If nothing helps, the problem may originate from the server’s end of the site. In this case, the site’s administrator is the only one available to fix the problem, so you will have to wait for a fix.

Option 1. Clear Browsing Data

If you do not clear your browsing data by age, some of the files on it may be corrupted. The only way to test that is to clear browsing data completely. If you do not want to lose your saved passwords and other personalized data, do the following:

  • Open Google Chrome and click the Add icon (the three vertical dots in the top right corner of the window).
  • Select Settings and scroll to the bottom and click Advanced.
  • Now look for the Clear browsing data option and click on it.
  • You’ll notice that the box has three options that are marked by default – Browsing history, Cookies and other site data, and Cached files and images. Do not unmark any of them as they need to be deleted.
  • Press DELETE to end. Restart the browser to see if there are any errors.

Option 2. Disable suspicious web browser extensions

If the ERR_CACHE_MISS error has started immediately after installing the free application, chances are you have installed an unwanted program (PUP) and allowed to install a third-party browser extension. Second can cause various browser crashes, including cache errors.

  • Open Google Chrome and type chrome://extensions in the address bar.
  • Alternatively, you can click the Add button (three vertical dots), click on More tools and select Extensions.
  • Carefully check the list of enabled gadgets and disable those you do not know.
  • For this purpose, uncheck the box next to Enable or click the trash can icon to remove the gadget completely.
  • Restart the browser.

Option 3. Reset Google Chrome

IMPORTANT: By resetting your web browser, you will lose all your saved profiles, bookmarks, passwords, autofill forms, and the like. So save everything needed and only then do the following:

  • Open Google Chrome, enter chrome: // settings in the address bar, and press Enter.
  • Scroll to the bottom and click Advanced.
  • At the bottom of the window, you’ll find a Reset button.
  • Click it and then click Reset again to confirm.

Option 4: Turn off the system cache

Note that this solution will only work in Developer Mode. Once you remove it, the system cache will be automatically enabled. So once you disable it, check if the error goes away.

  • Press Ctrl + Shift + I and press F1 to open Settings in Developer Mode.
  • Locate the Network and check the Disable cache checkbox (while DevTools is open).
  • Now refreshing the web page returns an ERR_CACHE_MISS error.

Option 5. Reset Network Settings

If no previous fixes have resolved the issue, try resetting the network settings. That is the last method applied to this problem, so if it does not work, we recommend contacting the site’s administrator and informing him about this issue.

Open Command Prompt (Admin).

Copy and paste the following commands in the Command Prompt window and press Enter after each command:

ipconfig / release
ipconfig / all
ipconfig / flushdns
ipconfig / renew
netsh int ip set dns
netsh winsock reset
