Empty the cache and delete the cookies, I'm told



I've been advised to empty the computer cache and delete cookies to speed up the machine.

I've also heard it can be good to empty the browser cache from time to time. I use Firefox, and my machine has Windows 8.1.

How do I do these things?

I managed to get the browser cache emptied, and it did speed up my browser. I still don't know about the cookie situation.

Strange. The cache is actually meant to speed things up, as reading files from your HD is quicker than downloading them. Unless, of course, it's been corrupted.

Cookies... Tools menu, Options, Privacy.
