Clear Cache On Firefox
It helps to clear your cache on Firefox if you’re experiencing slow load times or your computer’s performance has noticeably deteriorated. Of course, there are all sorts of things that you can do to speed your computer up, but it helps to first clear cache on Firefox if it is your primary web browser. Clearing the cache is easy, and it will only take a few seconds.
To clear your cache on Firefox, you will need:
- A computer
- Mozilla Firefox
- Begin by loading Firefox and waiting for it to fully load. You’ll know that Firefox is finished fully loading when you see your homepage before you.
- Look at the top of the browser for the “Tools” menu. Click this menu and select “Options” from the bottom of the list. The options allow you to tweak all sorts of things about your browser experience including your custom homepage, the way tabbed windows work, your preferred language and so much more.
- Click the “Advanced” tab in the Options window. These options are typically designed for more experienced users to modify, so make sure that you don’t change or click anything other than what’s included in the next step.
- Look for the part titled “Offline Storage.” This refers to your cache. In addition to allowing you to clear it, Firefox will tell you exactly how much space is being used on your hard disk for cache.
- Press “Clear Now.” This button is located to the right of the window. Note that if there is a lot of cache to be cleared (hundreds of MB), this might take a few moments. Your computer may even appear not to respond, but this is quite normal. Allow the process to complete.
- Press “OK” at the bottom of the window. Once you’ve selected “OK,” you’re finished with clearing your cache!
