Before switching to FF, I used IE for my browser. when it slowed down, there was an option to remove temp files. That usually solved the problem. I haven't figured out how to do this in FF. Is there a way to do this?

Thanks cjake

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

Temporary Internet Files are called the "cache" in Firefox. The cache shouldn't affect performance in Firefox, but just to make sure, here's how to delete it:

  1. Click on the Firefox button
  2. Click on Options
  3. Click on the Advanced section
  4. In the advanced tab, go to the Network tab
  5. Click the Clear Now button next to the sentence that shows how much hard disk space your cache takes up.

However, you may also want to take a look at this article if Firefox is getting a bit slow:
