Troubleshooting: Clearing Browser Cache, Cookies & History

Why?

Whether you’re having login trouble, issues with your browser, or any number of unusual errors, a quick clearing of the Cache, Cookies & History is the first solution we recommend.

Why do we ask you to do this? In order to speed up your internet experience, browsers will “remember” old versions of websites so that they load more quickly. Usually, this is not a problem, but when websites update, remembering that old version can sometimes cause a problem. Clearing Cache, Cookies & History tells the browser to start over fresh.

As per our FAQ’s (Frequently Asked Questions):

To access our service you need to have the latest update for browsers such as Chrome or Firefox and the appropriate hardware and operating system to support this.
