Websites look wrong - How to get Firefox to clear old pages from cache so that you see the most recent version of a website

Old version cached

Firefox caches websites, which means it saves some files on your machine so that it doesn't have to re-download everything when you visit sites. If a website has updated their code, Firefox may still be using some of the old code along with some of the new, which can make a web page display incorrectly. To fix this, you need to clear the cache:

  1. At the top of the Firefox window, click on the Tools menu, and select Options....
  2. Select the Advanced panel.
  3. Click on the Network tab
  4. Click Clear Now
  5. Click OK to close the Options window.

Now that your cache is cleared, visit the website again to see if the problem is solved.
