what happened to my cached web content?

Posted

What happened to my cached web content? Nothing there. Not able to clear it.

Chosen solution

In case you are using "Clear history when Firefox closes":

  • do not clear the "Cache" because Firefox will disable the disk cache in such a case

Note that clearing "Site Preferences" clears all exceptions for cookies, images, pop-up windows, software installation, and passwords.
