Expiring a page on clicking the browser BACK button

for a page i.e. if the customer clicks on “Submit” button on a.jsp then clicks on the browsers “BACK” button then we should expiry the page, irrespective if the request was successfully processed or an error page was thrown.

We have added the following code in the a.jsp that seems to work on IE but does not work on Firefox.

<META HTTP-EQUIV="CACHE-CONTROL" CONTENT="NO-CACHE">
<META HTTP-EQUIV="PRAGMA" CONTENT="NO-CACHE">
<META HTTP-EQUIV="EXPIRES" CONTENT="-1">
<%
response.addHeader("Cache-Control", "no-store");
//response.addHeader("Cache-Control", "no-cache");
response.setHeader("Pragma", "no-cache");
response.setHeader("Expires", "-1");
Can you please suggest what could be wrong in this?
