GENERAL: How do I clear my browser's cache or cookies?

A wide variety of browser display issues can be resolved by clearing your browser's cache. The cache is where your browser stores some information about a website. Occasionally, the stored information is incorrect or out of date. Clearing the cache [WikiHow] will make your browser retrieve fresh information, thus resolving some problems.

Cookies are used by websites for many purposes, including allowing you to stay logged into a website. Clearing your cookies [WikiHow] will wipe your login history from your browser, and allow websites to set fresh cookies. If you clear all your cookies, you will lose all the information that has been stored for Dreamwidth and other sites. To prevent this, many browsers allow you to selectively delete cookies from a specific website rather than clear all cookies.
