How do you know that nothing happens? Not all such actions have visible results.

Well, that may be but the instructions specify those (3).
Anyway it is still happening I just now had to restart firefox, I guess I'll have to go back to that page and keep checking troubleshooting.

Clear the following items, at least:
* Download History
* Cache

If you want to view your cache in Firefox:

Double click the blank space, in the Tab Bar, or right click a tab and select New Tab.
This will open a new, blank Tab.
In the Address Bar, type; about:cache
Click Enter.

Dialer, You asked the question, . .

How do you know that nothing happens? Not all such actions have visible results.

I answered with;
Well, that may be but the instructions specify those (3).
(Meaning, specify and where is the choice to select more than three or less than three ?)


Clear the following items, at least:
1.* Download History
2.* Cache
3.* Cookies

Tq1911,

I'll try that, thanks.

OK My Firefox Man !

Got it, but isn't this the stuff that ATF Cleaner clears ?

NO, ATF does not clear this cache, I never knew vey much about this cache but I always thought that it was cleared up by ATF cleaner. So, can you tell me what I should do with it, that is how this thread began.

Under Private Data, put a check next to Always clear my private data when I close Firefox.
Click the Settings... button.
Put a check next to anything you want deleted, when you close Firefox, and click OK.
Now, click the Clear Now button.
Click the OK button.
