Clear Cache Firefox
To keep your Firefox browser running at peak efficiency, it is recommended that you learn about how to clear cache Firefox periodically. When you visit a web page, images of the page are saved in your cache. The cache is basically a record of every page, image, sound or video file that you have visited on the web. Keeping these records uses hard drive space and sometimes prevents the most current version of a web page from loading. When you clear the cache, it frees the memory space that was used and helps your computer work faster.
Clearing the cache in Firefox is a simple process and takes just a few minutes.
- Locate the "Tools" menu on the top bar of Firefox. Using the drop down menu, locate "Options." The "Options" menu will pop up.
- Along the top of the "Options" menu, find and click the "Advanced" tab. This is the tab with the picture of a gear and is usually the last tab.
- Once you have the "Advanced" tab open, locate and click the "Network" tab. It is usually the second tab.
- Locate the section called "Offline Storage" on the "Network" tab and find the "Clear Now" button. Click the "Clear Now" button and wait for the cache to clear.
- If you wish to change the amount of disk space used for the cache, you can increase or decrease the amount using the arrows next to the numerical amount.
- Click the "OK" button when you are ready to close the "Options" window.
