Clearing the cache on your web browser

In the Nuttify Cloud we run caching which is designed to dramatically decrease load time on your website pages. We run caching for several reasons:

  • Caching provides a faster experience for your website visitors.
  • Fast web page increase conversion
  • Fast web pages decrease bounce rate and exit rates of your website visitors
  • Fast web pages improve your Google ranking as it is one of the important factors that Google ranks your site on

Sometimes after making changes to your site, you may see differences, or weird layouts with how it looks on your web browser. This is often due to caching. This can easily be fixed by clearing the cache in your browsers, which this article will walk you through exactly how to do so.

Another way to “force refresh” a page, without accessing the cache, is to hold Command + R (Mac) or Control + R (Windows)

Clearing the cache on Mozilla Firefox

  1. Go to Preferences > Advanced > Network
  2. Make sure “Cache” is ticked, and set the time range to “Everything” to be safe.
  3. Click clear now, refresh your page, and hopefully the updates will have noticeably taken place and there are no more visible errors or bugs
  4. If there are still discrepancies with your web page, contact us for further help
