My Firefox is 14.0.01, so it does not have any of the same wording as your ff 3.
It seems like I have working on this computer for weeks and it just won't go any where. I have had techs out to the house and they really louse it up. Is there a chance I have too many programs on it or some that may be making it slow? Is there anyway I can get that info to you? Thanks. My computer is about the only link to the outside world I have, so I want it good!!!!:thanks:
I think I can send you copies of things as a "capture" since you have an attachment clip.

Hello,

Ctrl-F5 only refreshes the current page (and related cache)

It does not delete your entire web cache for all sites that have been visited.

I think CTRL+F5 would be helpful for clearing the cache files of browsers or simply type PREFETCH in command prompt

In Chrome you can hit Ctrl-Shift-Delete to clear your browser data including cache and cookies.
