   To assist re opening an Hotmail account I have been told to optimize my" internet explorer browser". I do not use I.E. I only use Firefox as a browser.
     Optimizing involves clearing cookies, browsing history, delete offline content etc.   If I do this on FF will this be O.K. or must I use I.E?
