Clearing your Browser’s Cache/Hard Refreshing

Sometimes after making a change to your website, or after your website designer has promised you he has made the change you asked him to make, you still see the same old version of a page!

Before doing anything else, instruct your browser as shown below to bypass the cache (it’s history of pages and images that you have visited) so that the whole page is reloaded even if there is a cached copy.

Normally, revisiting the cached page, or clicking Refresh or Reload, will cause the browser to ask the website if there is a newer version available, downloading it only if there is.

How to over-ride this behaviour in Firefox

This includes Firefox, Mozilla and Netscape Navigator (versions 6.x and 7.x).

To reload a page and bypass the cache:

  • either: Hold down the Control and Shift keys, and press R. On an Apple Mac, use the Command key instead of Control.
  • or: Hold down the Shift key, and click the Reload button on the navigation toolbar.

To completely clear the cache (see note above):

  • From the ’Edit’ or ’Tools’ menu, choose ’Preferences’ or ’Options’. Expand the ’Advanced’ options and choose ’Cache’ or ’Privacy’. Click the button called ’Clear Cache’.
  • For Mozilla Firefox, go to ’Tools’ ¨ ’Options’ and click on ’Privacy’ (picture of a key) in the sidebar of the window that pops up. Click the ’Clear’ button that is next to the word ’Cache’.

How to over-ride this behaviour in Internet Explorer

To reload a page and bypass the cache:

  • either: Hold the Control key, and press F5.
  • or: Hold the Control key, and click the Refresh button on the toolbar.

To completely clear the cache (see note above):

  • Click on ’Tools’ and then ’Internet Options’ and choose the ’General’ tab. In the ’Temporary Internet files’ section, click ’Delete Files...’. You will then get a dialogue box asking if you want to delete just the temporary files, or all offline content. Choose the latter and click ’OK’.

How to over-ride this behaviour in Safari

To reload a page and bypass the cache:

  • either: Hold down the Command and Shift keys, and press R.
  • or: Hold down the Shift key and click the Reload toolbar button.

To completely clear the cache (see note above):

  • From the ’Safari’ menu, choose ’Empty Cache...’ or hold down the Option and Command keys and press E.
