How to clear you cookies and cache by browser:
The first thing you’ll need to do to clear your cookies and cache is determine what browser you’re using. Use the links below for both PC and Mac users for the most recent versions of the following browsers:
Why Clear Cookies and Cache?
Whether you’re having login trouble, issues with your Workspace, or any number of unusual errors, a quick emptying of the cookies and cache is the first solution we try as a support team. Please note however that if you have a temporary Workspace clearing your cache will remove the saved citations (to save and keep your Workspace, login or register directly from your Workspace.)
So why are you asking me to do it? 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 cookies and cache tells the browser to start over fresh.
If you do clear your cache and cookies but are still experiencing a problem, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll get to the bottom of it.
