Where is the "tools" option in the new firefox version. I can't find it and need to clear my cache


I was told by a webmaster that I need to "clear my cache" to make their website work right again. I have instructions to go to the "tools" option, but the new version of firefox doesn't have "tools" that I can find. Can someone please help. thanks
