  • Nice functionality but the 'auto clear' does not appear to work.
    Update manually or wait for Mozilla to approve it. Thanks.
  • Почему кеш не чистит автоматически? на Firefox 24

    > Why not clean the cache automatically? for Firefox 24

    Update manually or wait for Mozilla to approve it. Thanks.
  • Updated to new v. 2.3 and reverted to 2.2 as button insists on occupying a certain fixed place on toolbar, flexibility to move or hide it is lost. To some people F9 is all that is required and button is allowed to rest in Toolbar pallet.Thank for such an incredible tool.
    Edit- Fixed in v. 2.4
    You are correct; version 2.4 fixes this and is already uploaded. Please note that the button may be automatically added for one last time after the update.
  • A option to clear the cache on time schedule will be great.
  • Merci cette extension va me rendre de précieux service, très simple d'utilisation.
  • works like a charm, and very useful for webmasters.
  • This add-on helps firefox to have lots of room in it's cache. If your firefox ever gets slow, try using it.
  • I can't thank you enough for such an incredible tool. It's small, fast and a very powerful tool. I have been using it for almost 6-8 months and never faced an issue. Thank you once again and keep up the good work!!
    Your feedback is appreciated.
  • Great add-on. I work for a computer Help Desk where I have to delete my cache multiple times per day for troubleshooting reasons. This handy button rocks!
  • It isn't clearing my favicon cache on Firefox 21 beta
  • The only thing this extension needs is an option to have it automatically clear cache once it reaches a user's specified level of cache. Similar to how this extension did it addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/cache-status, see addons.cdn.mozilla.net/img/uploads/previews/full/4/4159.png
    This feature has been suggested before and will most likely be available in one of the upcoming versions. No promises, but a big possibility.

    Thanks for your input.
  • While the Empty Cache Button works fine and is good about telling me when it has completed, I can't tell when I have it actually clicked. It would be nice to get a brief notification "Clearing Cache Now" as it starts.
    Hello, thanks for your input but I'm afraid it's not a good idea. Browsers aren't really expected to work normally while the cache is clearing in the background.

    If you own an older machine, it will usually take some seconds (and even freeze your browser in some cases for that time) to clear cache. On modern machines it takes only a moment.

    The purpose of this addon is to simplify the default cache clearing dialog. Using two notifications for that simple single process simply doesn't make sense.
  • Will brief summarize suggested feature and why. Based on testing in a porting lab:

    Want:
    Automatic empty of ENTIRE cache at a predefined cache threshold. You already have reload on success, so it can integrate nicely. Nobody has this feature AFAIK, so you would have something unique. User choice or developer preset. 75mb, 100mb. Better would be 50% of total, 90% of total, etc.

    Why:
    1) In the old days disks had slower I/O but the head had smaller platters to manage. Today faster I/O, but larger platters. Its a wash. Firefox considers the default size of the cache based on free space (they may change that, but see #2). Past 100mb, disk thrashing begins. By 200mb, thrashing is bad. On larger platters, not good.

    2) FF spends more time pruning cache to make room when cache hits max capacity (a read, a write/delete, then another write with new cache entry). How does the pruning work? Look at google/youtube entries in about:cache. Why I capitalized ENTIRE cache. If its expiration some of the cache may never get removed.

    Example(s) Auto clean at 90% of max, there would never be a hit for pruning. Auto clean at 50% of max, less disk thrashing, no pruning hit.
    You have some good points in there.

    Auto-cleaning has been suggested before so I plan to look into it. No promises that it will ever become a feature.
  • With both 17.1 and Nightly 20.1a not seeing "notification upon success"...is it working?

    Is working, checked "about:cache". Just no display.

    Thanks for the great add-on.
    It's strange that your notification doesn't show up because it should.

    However, Mozilla recently changed notifications a bit so maybe a new bug was introduced for some machines, I don't really know.
  • Very useful and functional add-on. Just a quick note that might be of use to those not seeing the button: in Firefox 16.0.2 (and possibly 16.0.1) the button defaults to the navigation toolbar, so if you don't have one displayed, you will probably want to move it from there.
    Hello there, thanks for noticing (and especially for reporting) this problem.
    I will look into it, hopefully it will be possible to check toolbar visibility before placing the button up there.
  • Great add-on! But the notification is not shown if Offline Cache is selected in Firefox 16.0.1.
  • Love it! However, it stopped appearing in the FF 16.0.1 release. In fact, I sent Mozilla a message..one of those..made me unhappy remarks. Honestly, I want this thing working!
    I'm fairly confident that it's a problem on your Firefox/machine. Add-on has been tested on 16.0.1 on various machines and shows no signs that you describe.

    Try uninstalling the add-on and then installing again, check if you maybe forgot the button inside "Customize Toolbar" window (even though since version 2.0 it should add itself automatically), check if some other add-on is causing the problem, ... it could be anything.

    You can also try installing some older versions of the add-on to eliminate the possibility that only 2.0 breaks for you. Here's a link:

  • Thanks for the keyboard shortcut. The empty cache button is now pretty much flawless. And I was very impressed with the speed by which you responded to my keyboard shortcut request.
  • Wonderfully easy to work with. Love the new keyboard shortcut
  • Still seems to be working in 21--still think a good thing
    I have just been upgraded to version 14 Firefox PC--have tried installing/uninstalling TWICE but the icon will not appear where shown in instruction and I do not see it anywhere not added to toolbars so........???? It is DEFINITELY NEED FOR FIREFOX AND IN ALL THEIR UPDATES I DON'T KNOW WHY THEY HAVEN'T PUT THIS IN IT........
  • was wondering if you could port this to chrome, nothing exists right now thats 1-click and as sleek. will contribute some $! anyway, excellent work. highly recommend, and notification is nice touch.
  • Love it, it is very (as in VERY) simple to use.
    Clears your cache with one easy click.
    These are the programs we LOVE!!!
    Thank you.
  • 1- Erases 4 types of cache (Memory, Disk, Offline, Favicon) indeed. What is not clearly mentioned is that you have the option to choose among these four caches: I almost missed this add-on because of that ;
    2- Disk cache is truly well cleaned, I mean this add-on uses the right code. I say this because if you set a lower limit to disk cache (i.e. 50MB), once disk cache hits this limit Firefox sometimes slightly exceeds this limit (like say 51MB) : other disk cache cleaners I've tried failed in theses circumstances when this add-on does not (same operation obviously as Firefox built-in disk cache cleanup).
    3- Consequently, 5 stars. Pop-up the volume -- I mean keep up the good work -- :)
    >>> Merry Xmas to all <<<
  • This was my go-to plugin for development, but it stopped working recently. It doesn't seem to either empty the cache or reload the page. :( (Mac OS X Lion)

    UPDATE: Yes, this appears to be a FF bug. Hopefully it will be fixed soon.
    Sorry to hear that but I think it's a Firefox (Mac version) bug ... the cache clearing API didn't change and it works fine on other platforms.

    Can you try another cache clearing extension and report back if it works? Thanks.
  • Installed v1.9 on Firefox 3.6.23 running on Ubuntu 10.04, but no icon or menu item appears anywhere, as far as I can determine. No mention anywhere in the description that it is incompatible with Linux systems or that it might require installation of additional support software.

    Update: It does work on Linux when the instructions are followed, though it would be better if manual setup weren't needed. There are other cache cleaners and Firefox add-ons that place an icon or button in the GUI automatically.
    Did you read the install instructions?

    EDIT: Well, according to API, Mozilla thinks it's better if you don't add the icon automatically to a toolbar.
