should I clear my cookies and cache
I have been asked by a web site, because I couldn't access info, maybe I should clear my cookies and cache. Is this advisable? What consequences are there to do this procedure, good and bad? Thank you.

Hi sciencemagic, Clearing cookies, cache and site data gets rid of the "old" information and allows for new site information to be loaded. It's a relatively common thing to do. Especially, when a site updates. The only "bad" part is in reference to logins. You would be logged out and will have to log in again, re-newing the login cookies.
If you have any issues - let us know.
Hi sciencemagic, you don't have to clear all cookies from all sites. On the Options page, Privacy & Security panel, in the Cookies section, the Manage Data button lets you remove cookies for certain sites without disturbing the others.
Hi jscher2000, I tried your suggestion of deleting the specific site's cookies. I will see if it makes a difference. Thanks for the reply.
