My firefox browser just can't clear out the cache of a specific site: http://www.foundationdrillandtool.com/, the site shows no menu in my Firefox but OK in other browsers and also OK for other users using Firefox. I cleared the cache by going to Tools/Options/Advanced/Network/Cached Web Content

What makes you believe that your cache is not being cleared?

the site shows no menu in my Firefox but OK in other browsers

Maybe this is due to a bug in the website causing it to fail loading the menu on Firefox. In which case its no a problem you can fix at your end (except for switching to a browser that works), you need to inform the webmaster of the website to fix it.

  • The site was created by myself but I have no idea why it suddenly happened, I have shut down the site for now and hopefully get some help from the vendor of the template I am using.

  • ok, but again there is no evidence to support that the fault is with the browser cache. It could also be a plugin (ad block?) you have loaded into firefox that interferes with the menu. Try running firefox disabling all plugins.

Assuming Windows:


Just trash the contents of that directory while Firefox isn't running.
