Clearing Cookies and Browser Cache

About cached files

As you move around ToffeeWeb and other websites, your browser will store information and locally cache certain files (like images and stylesheets, etc) to make the site load faster on return visits and also reduce the need to download again such items off the server if they haven't changed.

Occasionally, changes on the website's server aren't reflected in your browser because it has held on to those locally cached files and this can cause problems when you try and browse some pages on the site. You may also need or want to clear cookies (those harmless text files that help our server remember certain things about you, like your ToffeeWeb username and preferences) that your browser has stored from the website and, on both cases, you can clear your entire browser cache or just those files pertaining to ToffeeWeb.
