Firefox for PC/Mac (Desktop)

Clearing the cache in the Firefox browser on a PC is a straightforward process. Here’s how you can do it:

  1. Open Firefox:
    Launch the Mozilla Firefox browser on your PC.
  2. Access Settings:
    In the top-right corner of the browser window, click on the three horizontal lines to open the menu.
  3. Go to Settings:
    From the menu, select “Settings.”
  4. Privacy & Security Section:
    In the left sidebar, click on “Privacy & Security.”
  5. Clear Data:
    Under the “Cookies and Site Data” section, click on the “Clear Data” button.
  6. Choose Data to Clear:
    In the pop-up window, make sure the box next to “Cached Web Content” is checked. You can also choose to clear other data like cookies and site data if desired.
  7. Clear Data:
    Click on the “Clear” button to confirm and initiate the cache-clearing process.
  8. Restart Firefox (Optional):
    After clearing the cache, you can choose to close and restart the Firefox browser for the changes to take effect. This step is optional but can help ensure a clean start.

Please note that clearing the cache will log you out of websites, and you may lose some browsing history. The exact menu options may vary slightly depending on the version of Firefox you’re using, but the general steps should be similar. If you have trouble finding the specific settings, you can refer to the Firefox Help documentation or check the settings menu in Firefox for guidance.
