No browser is perfect, and you’re bound to experience an error sooner or later. If you’re online, and what you’re doing involves submitting data, such as when you’re filling out a form or adding your financial information while shopping.
You get this error because the site you’re visiting wasn’t able to read your cache correctly, or the cache wasn’t saved at all because there is an interruption in the connection. Sometimes the error is not your fault, and the error can be because the site’s server is off. If that were the case, all you can do is wait it out, but if the error is due to an error in your browser, then the following tips should help.
Make the Err_cache_miss Error in Chrome Go Away
If you haven’t updated your Chrome browser in a while, maybe that’s all it needs to start working correctly. Also, you can try clearing the cache for Chrome, but if you want to try updating the browser, go to:
- Click on dots at the top right
- Click on the help option
- About Google Chrome
On the next page, Chrome will start looking for an update automatically. If the browser is up to date, Chrome will show you a message telling you that. If there is an update waiting, Chrome will start downloading it.
An easy fix that could get the job done is refreshing the page. By refreshing, you’ll get one of two possible outcomes. The page will be restored, or you’ll re-send any information again. When you’re not dealing with any financial information, it’s not a problem. Still, when you’re doing something such as sending a payment, you could end up paying twice.
Before refreshing, you could try looking into the site you were making the payment in and see if the payment went through. If it didn’t, you know you can refresh the site without worrying about double paying. If you decide to restart Chrome, don’t let the browser open the tabs you had open unless you verify the payment didn’t go through.
Reset Your Network Using the Command Prompt
There are various ways you can open the Command Prompt. You can either search for it in the search bar or open it using the Run Box. To open the Run Box, press the Windows and R buttons. When the box appears. Type cmd and click ok. When the Command Prompt opens, you’ll need to enter the following commands one at a time; when you’re done entering one, press enter and then add the next one.
- ipconfig /release
- ipconfig /all
- ipconfig /flushdns
- ipconfig /renew
- netsh int ip set dns
- netsh winsock reset
Make sure to save any important things you’re working on since there is a good chance you’re going to need to reboot your computer.
Turn off Bothersome Extensions
If you noticed that you’re getting the Chrome error right after you installed one or more extensions, then you might want to remove them. Try to remember the last one you installed and remove it. If things stay the same, try removing the other extensions you installed, and hopefully, that’ll fix the issue.
You can remove Chrome extensions by going to:
You should see all the extensions you’ve installed on Chrome. If you’re not ready to part ways with the extensions you installed, you can try disabling them first. I recommend you try disabling any adblocker since usually the ones responsible.
Getting any type of error when you’re working can be really annoying. Especially when what you’re doing is important. Hopefully, your issue was fixed by trying the basic methods or that if the site was the responsible one, they fixed the problem as soon as possible. How often do you have to deal with this problem?
