    When I tried to clear my cache, History, cookies, etc. I chose “Tools” “options” “Primary” but I don’t have the choice “History/Saved Forms/Passwords/downlaod history/cookies/cache”
    that you show

    How do I clear everything?

    I’m using the latest version of firefox, how come it doesn’t have all those options to clear cache? How do I do it now?

    Just like ie if you click to allow a pop-up in firefox, that page you visit can end up in the list of sites to allow pop-ups. That site will not be cleared with the history and cache. you can clear this list if you go to tool>options. go to the content tab and then click the button that says “Exceptions” to the right of the “block pop ups” check box.
