Hulu says I may need to clear my browser cache--how is this done? Any comments appreciated.


Hulu programs stop and screen message says I may have to clear my browser cache. Does this sound reasonable? How do I do that?

I don't use Hulu, so I don't know whether clearing your cache will help...

You can open the Options dialog from the orange Firefox button or the Tools menu:

Options dialog > Advanced > Network > Offline Storage: "Clear Now"

Or you can use

Tools > Clear Recent History

but take care not to clear other history you want to save.
