Rails and Firefox on crack with redirections

Without going into the specifics of what you have or have not done, I
think you might need to do a little more digging: is firefox
requesting the wrong page from your app, is it requesting the right
page but doing something funny, is it just serving a page from its
cache ?

Firefox requests the page that was protected by the before_filter.
Safari doesn't do that.

It's only when I use the refresh button (or ctrl+r shortcut) that
firefox instead of refreshing the current index page, goes to the former
/show/my_url.

If I "refresh" manually the index page by simply pressing the Enter key
when focus is in the address bar, it doesn't act stupidly.

This could be handy:

<table style = "font-size:small;">
<% req = request.env
   req.each do |key,value| %>
  <tr><td><%= "#{key}" %></td><td><%= "#{value}" %></td></tr>
  <% end %>
