Clearing the Cache in Firefox

For those of you who have been having problems with Firefox on Old Navy Weekly nights, here is the trick to clearing your cache (a sort of "short term" memory).

The easiest way is to use the Clearing Cache add-on in Firefox. Select Tools - Add-ons - then click get Add-ons in the upper left hand corner. A small Search box will open just underneath that button and search for Clear cache. Or you can use this link!

It will install, you will have to restart your browser, then there should be a button that looks like a little broom under your address bar! It will look like this:

You can also do it by hand by following these steps:

Firefox 2 (older editions)
  • After opening Mozilla Firefox (if you don't have it open already).
  • On the menu bar at the top of your screen, select TOOLS, click on OPTIONS from the pull down menu
  • click on the PRIVACY icon and then click on the CACHE tab
  • Click the CLEAR CACHE NOW button to delete any files that are in the cache.
  • Then click the OK button
Firefox 3:
  • On the menu bar at the top of your screen, select TOOLS, click on OPTIONS from the pull down menu
  • Click Advanced and then Network
  • Click Clear Now then OK and you are done!

I hope this helps! See you at next week!

  1. Maybe TGIT doesn’t have the same ring as TGIF, but we’ve got at least one reason for you to celebrate today – Thursday means that is going to be hiding new amazing coupons, including deals like $65 off $100 and tomorrow we’ll have a new Item of the Week! This time it’s Women’s Cable V-Neck and Argyle Sweaters for just $12 each! Both styles are super fabulous, and just in time for Fall – you don’t wanna miss out on these trendy tops. Just ask Kelly, her Facebook page is up and bustling with the latest Old Navy 411! And Heather’s profile goes live tomorrow, so be sure to check it out too. Plus, you can follow ALL the SuperModelquins on Twitter, so there are plenty of ways to get the inside scoop.
