I am using Firefox, but the difference is that by happenstance, I was in
privacy mode (perhaps for the first time with python.org -- I want the
docs in the cache and history list -- because I accessed the docs to
answer a StackOverflow question.) It is not just that document but also
Execution model and Expression in Reference. (I tried each 3 times
minutes apart.) I have not had a similiar problem with any Arstechnica
or StackOverflow pages, or similar sites.
So the solution for me is to use normal mode, but something seems not
quite right in the interaction between privacy mode Firefox and python.org.
No problem I could find with Internet Explorer's 'In Privacy' mode.
