It is not a browser version issue since refreshing the page fixes it. The issue is new resources served at the old urls that have already been cached by browsers. Some browsers just cache a little more aggressively then others and how aggressively they cache is also based on how fast your connection is. If a resource takes too long to grab the browser can decide to use a local copy.
I have not seen any browser recently violate caching instructions though. The odds are your older resources where set as cache-able resources and did not require immediate re-validation so when you put in your new resources at the old urls the older data was used.
