How to - Clear the cache & Cookies

How to - Clear the cache & Cookies in
FireFox/ Internet Explore/ Google Chrome

Clearing the browsers cache can solve a bunch of display or login-problems.

Browsers store the content of a website in their cache, to avoid loading images
or other content again the next time you visit this site.
This is speeding up your web browsing, but can sometimes lead to "obsolete"
pages (when the browser still prefers accessing content from the cache instead of loading updated content).

Clearing the cache would force a browser to download the content again to display an up-to-date page.

Below are some instructions on how to clear the cache in Firefox and Internet Explorer.
If you are using another browser, search in the help files or browse through the options or settings.

If you have some experience with a yet unlisted browser, you are invited to write a short tutorial for it so we could update this thread.
Please PM ME "
Ape" With it and please no need to add the arrows as this can be placed on the screen shot's when I edit the first post Thank you.

Two methods are available here, the first one being the most simple and the fastest one to clear your entire cache.
Just hit "Ctrl Shift Del" on your keyboard.

A window will appear that allows you to clear private browser data.

One of the options you can select here is "Cache", so be sure you have marked this box before confirming the deletion.
This option is also available in the "Tools" tab in your main menu (clear private data).

If you have a site opened while doing this, don't forget to refresh it.

The next option is very easy as well, just refresh the page with "Ctrl F5".
This method, however, does not clear the entire cache, but only for the current active page.

Internet Explorer
In the main menu, select "Tools" and then "Internet Options".

Stay on the General-tab and click the button "Delete" in the section "Browsing History" - as seen in the screen shot above.

You will now see a list with options to delete private and temporary data.

Click the button on the very top - Temporary Internet Files - and confirm the deletion afterwards.

or you can just click delete all this will remove all  

Google Chrome
Below your close button on your browser you will see a wrench.

Click the wrench.

Click Options

Click Under the Hood Tab

Click Clear Browsing Data

Make sure you have everything clicked like this picture

Note there is one not ticked in this screen shot you may want to tick that one also

Once you have everything clicked clear browsing data
