How to Resolve “Err_Cache_Miss” in Google Chrome

Google Chrome Not Working

Err_Cache_Miss Error Resolve

The “Err_Cache_Miss” error that appears while browsing in Google Chrome has something to do with cache. It pops up when the browser is having issues caching a site, or a web application’s cache. The error can occur for several reasons; for starters, it could be due to bad coding on that site, or in the application you are attempting to run. Besides, it could be a bug or something like corrupt extension in Google Chrome.

The point is “Err_Cache_Miss” is generated by many factors that add up to one and it can make browsing complicated. It is a bit annoying like “Google Chrome not working” error. However, the good thing is you can get rid of the cache error. As with any browser issue, there are many ways to fix this one too. First, find out whether it is due to the internet connection or something completely different.

Ensure the Internet is Working Properly

In several cases, it occurs because of a site-side issue, not that of your internet. To ensure it is working fine, open any other site aside from the one that you are trying to use. Typically, you can do this on Google Chrome, but if you need to be fully assured, do it on another browser. If the sites are opening, and other services related to the internet are running, there is nothing wrong with your internet connection.

Ensure the Browser is Working Properly

Testing this is somewhat easy, try opening a different site on it. If the site opens, then it means it is malfunctioning. However, if the site does not open, try it on another browser, and if it opens, it means your primary browser/Chrome is not working fine. To resolve your browser issue, uninstall and reinstall it from your computer or restore the browser settings to default.

In any case, resolving with the above-mentioned methods will at least confirm that the internet is working, and the issue lies in the actual site or browser. Both those issues can be resolved easily.

Clear Google Chrome’s History

Many people forget to delete browsing history for reason or the other. If you run into the “Err_Cache_Miss” error time and again, removing it might resolve the issue for some. Not all endorse this method, but it is one, that works in several cases.

  • Open Google Chrome. Once it launches on the screen, press Ctrl and H keys at the same time.

  • In the new window, click on the History menu button to the upper left corner, and choose the Clear browsing data

  • Select all the history you want to remove, and click the Clear browsing data
  • Exit the browser, and reopen it to see if that resolves the issue. If not, proceed to the next step.

Fix the Error Using Google Chrome’s Developer Tools

Google Chrome has a developer tools option, using which you can resolve most of the browser-related issues. Follow the below steps to fix the “Err_Cache_Miss” error.

  • Open the Google Chrome browser, and enter the URL that is showing the error message.
  • Now that the webpage is showing it, simultaneously press the Ctrl, Shift, and I
  • Now press the F1 key, and you go into a Preferences In it, find the subheading Network, and select the Disable cache (while DevTools is open) option.
  • After that is done, refresh the webpage and check if it begins working.

There is no surety the above-mentioned step will resolve the error, particularly if it originates from the site rather than Google Chrome. It is still a good idea to check this Developer Tools method. If it fails to fix the issue, proceed to the next step.

Flush DNS

 Google Chrome Won't Open

Common Browser Issues

Flushing DNS is done through command prompt in Windows, and it takes only a few minutes.

  • Click on the Windows Start button, and select Command Prompt (Admin). If you are on a newer Windows 10 update, though, you will see and will have to open Windows Powershell (Admin).
  • Then, type and execute each command in the exact order and the way they are presented below. Put the spaces in between each command as they are. To execute a command, press Enter after typing it in command prompt.
    • ipconfig /release
    • ipconfig /all
    • ipconfig /flushdns
    • ipconfig /renew
    • netsh int ip set dns
    • netsh winsock reset

Once you are done, restart your system. Once it reboots, open the browser and you should no longer see the error. However, if Google Chrome won’t open the web page and the error persists, you might have an entirely different issue at hand. If you want to get to the root cause, and fix it, feel free to get in touch with our browser support professionals through the toll-free number mentioned above.
