Browser Configuration Instructions: Firefox 3 for the Mac

Caching is something most browsers are configured to do by default in order to save bandwidth. Storing images and text in your local computer's memory can be a good thing, but can cause confusion and frustration when trying to use a browser to update your website and the content doesn't change even after making specific changes! The following instructions will allow you to configure your browser and prevent it from caching old data when working with PAW and will help ensure you see the latest updates you are making to your website within the PAW application.


Configure Firefox 3 for the Mac to not cache webpages:

Click on "Firefox" in the menu bar, then on "Preferences". A box will pop up with a number of icons at the top. Click on the "Advanced" icon, then on the "Network" tab. You will see a section on this page called "Offline Storage".

Where it says "Use up to ... MB of space for the cache" change the setting to "0". Click on the "Clear Now button, then exit the dialog box.
