Doesn't clear enough Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I'm using FF 28.0 and I like the idea, but it doesn't clear enough of the cache for FF to reload fresh YouTube thumbnails. I have to clear cache via FF Options>Advanced>Cached Web Content.

Has stopped showing notification with FF 28 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Nice little Add-on, but "Success" notification needs to be fixed. FF 28

I have disabled, removed and reinstalled with no change in this.

Simple d'accès et rapide même si beaucoup d'outils pour devs avec la même option existent.

Great Extension, Simple, easy and working

Die Basis-Funktion funktioniert einwandfrei Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Drauf klicken, Cache ist leer. Autoclean habe ich nicht probiert, aber ich verstehe den Sinn einer solchen Funktion auch nicht.

Thank you

Thanks for your input.

I also don't understand why anyone would need the auto clear function but it was requested multiple times in the reviews, so I guess people out there need it.

Nice functionality but the 'auto clear' does not appear to work.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.4). 

Should be fixed in 2.5

Update manually or wait for Mozilla to approve it. Thanks.

Great extention, but latest version forces icon on right of toolbar. Even moving it resets it's position. Not cool. Let us choose where it goes. Don't tell us where we want it.

Flexibility to move or hide toolbar button is lost in v. 2.3. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

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

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.3). 

Version 2.4 fixes this

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.

This add-on helps firefox to have lots of room in it's cache. If your firefox ever gets slow, try using it.

Amazing Tool! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

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!!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.2). 

Thank you

Your feedback is appreciated.

Awesome! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

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!

Doesn't seem to clear Favicon cache Rated 3 out of 5 stars

It isn't clearing my favicon cache on Firefox 21 beta

Option to automatically clear cache at user's specified level Rated 5 out of 5 stars

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 review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1). 

It's quite possible

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.

Works great, looks great, I love it Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works as advertised and I appreciate the fine-grained configurable options - which caches to clear, whether or not to show a notification, and what to reload after cache has been cleared.Also like the attractive, minimalist toolbar button which doesn't uglify my browser. Thanks!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0). 

Nice review

Thanks for noticing all the details, it's appreciated.

Initialization Feedback Rated 4 out of 5 stars

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.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0). 

Not a good idea

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.

Would like an "Auto-Empty" feature Rated 5 out of 5 stars

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.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Good points

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.
