How do I clear cache in FF?

Posted

How do I clear the cache in FF without losing all my saved login passwords? I'd prefer to have FF clear the cache upon exiting FF. I have unchecked to box to clear data & passwords, but still I lose my passwords.

I'm not asking about "automatically log you in". I just want the passwords to be retained when the cache is cleared. Then I can log in quickly (not automatically).

According to Saleforce, I need to reset the cache for my company org to load at a respectable speed - right now it is painfully slow at http://www.amusementequipmentdirectory.com

Can you clear your cache without losing all the remembered passwords? This is most important. Thank You.

Tools > Clear Recent History... - hit Details and make sure only Cache is selected, then select Everything and hit the Clear Now button.
