Error messages will pop up from time to time if you use any web browser long enough. Problems with your browser can be pretty aggravating, regardless of whether it’s a slow-loading web page or an internet connection that’s broken. The Err_Cache_Miss issue is one of the most common problems for Google Chrome users, and it occurs when you try to submit data to a website (after filling in a form, for instance). Following these steps may be necessary if your browser or internet connection refuses to cooperate.
What is an Err_Cache_Miss Error in Google Chrome?
Err_Cache_Miss meaning: This error occurs when data is transmitted from your browser to a server on the internet is halted. However, retransmitting data may not always be the best option.
For example, if you’re making a purchase and just entered your credit card information into a form, the information may be transmitted twice (potentially causing two transactions). Because of this, Google Chrome’s caching system warns you with the Err_Cache_Miss error message.
How to Solve an Err_Cache_Miss Error
A web server may be the source of the problem. Unfortunately, it isn’t much you can do if this is the case (and the server isn’t configured correctly). If none of the advice above works, you’ll need to get in touch with your web host or the server administrator.
There are some ways to fix the problem. As a result, this ranges from just reloading the page to completely disabling Google Chrome’s caching engine.
Refresh the Page
Most Err_Cache_Miss errors can be fixed by just reloading the page. Click on the Reload this page button in the Chrome browser’s upper-left corner to do so. Alternately, you can use your keyboard’s F5 key.
However, you should be informed of the consequences of refreshing the page before you do so.
Because of this mistake, reloading a page will attempt to resend any previously entered data. If you are signing up for a site or trying to use an online shopping cart, you could cause the data to be transmitted twice, causing the operation to be duplicative.
Selecting the address in the URL bar & pressing Enter instead of refreshing will allow you to ensure no data is sent back to the server.
Clear Cookies and Other Saved Data
Err_Cache_Miss errors may be caused by a faulty browser cache (containing cookies and other data), which prevents the page from refreshing. Clearing your browser’s data, including cookies, is the only way to fix this.
1. For this, pick the hamburger menu symbol in the top-left, then choose Settings.
2. In the Settings menu, please scroll down to the Clear browsing data button and tap it.
3. All Time should be selected from the Time range drop-down option in the Clear Browsing Data window, with all checkboxes checked. You can begin by clicking the Clear data button.
If you have a lot of data stored in your browser, this may take time to complete. Make sure the Err_Cache_Miss problem is fixed by reloading the web page after the process is complete.
Check for Browser Updates
Unknown crashes in Chrome can be solved by keeping Chrome up-to-date. For example, the Err_Cache_Miss error may be a sign that your browser is a little out of date.
New features and urgent bug fixes are included in the latest browser versions. Before attempting more radical remedies, updating your browser is worth a shot before making any other decisions.
1. Using the hamburger menu, pick Settings in the top-right corner to see any Google Chrome updates.
2. Then click on the About Chrome link in the Settings menu, located in the upper-right corner.
3. When you open Google Chrome, it will search for and install any new available features. Choose the Update Google Chrome button if it does not.
Disable Any Conflicting Google Chrome Extensions
Google Chrome extensions can enhance the browser’s capabilities, but if they’re out-of-date and unsupported, they can cause problems. For example, the Err_Cache_Miss error in Chrome can be fixed by disabling unwanted Google Chrome addons.
When a page is deemed a threat by the Avast Online Security Extension, it might also be blocked from loading. Whether or whether this is intentional, you’ll have to disable the extension if you require a page to load.
1. Google Chrome extensions can be accessed from the hamburger menu in the browser’s top-right corner by selecting More Tools > Extensions.
2. A list of all the extensions you’ve installed can be seen in the Extensions menu. To turn off an extension, move the slider adjacent to it.
Reload the problematic page while the extensions are disabled. You can quickly find out which extension is causing the problem if the page loads after restoring each extension one by one and reloading it.
Reset Your Network Settings
The problem outside of Google Chrome could be stopping you from accessing a website. For example, your DNS cache or an incorrectly configured internet connection may cause the chain to break, preventing your browser from properly transferring data to a web server and resulting in an Err_Cache_Miss Chrome error.
Resetting your network settings will fix the issue if that is the case.
1. Right-click the Start menu and choose Windows PowerShell (Administrator) from the context menu that appears.
2. To obvious your DNS cache and network configuration, use the following commands in the PowerShell window:
netsh winsock reset
3. For Mac users, open a new Terminal window by choosing the Launchpad from the Dock, then selecting Other > Terminal.
4. In the new Terminal window, now type the following commands to reset your DNS cache:
sudo killall -HUP mDNSResponder
To reset the connection you’re now using (including your DNS cache), you should run these commands. If there isn’t a deeper problem with your browser, web server, or internet connection, this should allow data from your browser to travel to the distant server and avoid an error from appearing.
Disable Google Chrome Caching
Disabling the Google Chrome caching engine in Developer Tools can be used to bypass an Err_Cache_Miss error.
1. For this, load the broken page in Chrome, pick the hamburger menu icon in the top-right corner, and select More Tools > DevTools.
2. In the Developer Tools menu, choose the Network tab, then ensure that the Disable cache checkbox is enabled.
Refresh or reload the page in Google Chrome if the cache has been disabled. You may have to resubmit the form or data you previously supplied, but the error message will disappear.
Resolving Google Chrome Issues
It’s possible to encounter other problems while using Google Chrome, such as “Your connection is not private,” despite the actions outlined above.

Check your internet connection for problems and consider using another browser like Firefox or Microsoft Edge if you still can not fix this or other Google Chrome difficulties.
