    Try this first: Safari Menu...Empty Cache

    If that is unsuccessful try: Safari Menu...Reset Safari

    The Help Menu says this about reseting:

    If you use a shared or public computer, you may want to reset Safari to
    prevent other people from seeing what you have been doing.

    Resetting Safari clears the history, empties the cache, clears the
    Downloads window, and removes all cookies. It also removes any saved
    user names and passwords or other AutoFill data and clears Google
    search entries.

    In addition, any open windows are closed and a new window opens. The
    new window has a new history for the Back and Forward buttons and the
    SnapBack buttons.

    Choose Reset Safari from the Safari menu and click Reset.

    Your friendly neighborhood ISP is caching it for you :-(

    I don't think so. The behavior on my system looks more like a new bug
    in Safari. I've always used the "my eBay" feature to see what is
    happening in auctions of interest. Since the recent update to Safari I
    find that I have to manually click update in order to get current
    contents of this screen. I've never had to do this before. I also run
    an XP machine from the same DSL connection and Mozilla does not
    display this disturbing behavior.

    The intention is good because content on the web is often not always
    terribly dynamic and it doesn't make sense to always force transfers
    across the net to update something that hasn't changed. But with a
    page like 'my eBay' the browser should never cache. Whatever algorithm
    they are playing with is broken. I hope they fix it soon. I don't want
    to be told an auction will end in 2 hours when it will actually be in
    2 minutes.
