Clear browser data (cache, cookies, history)

Delete browser cache (temporary internet files)

When is this necessary?

Cause. The browser temporarily stores pages you have viewed in cache memory. The browser retrieves the page from cache memory and displays the saved (old) version.

Solution? You can "force" the browser to retrieve the latest version from the server by clearing the cache. Clearing all cache files will show you the current information again.
