Firefox Flash Temporary Internet Files ....

by Xonnie316 / May 3, 2007 11:43 AM PDT

Hey CNet members,

When I go on flash sites with Internet Explorer, such as YouTube, and I view a clip, and I go back to the page, it doesn't start from scratch, its in the temporary internet files,

But when I use Firefox my default internet browser, it seems to re-download the whole thing from scratch each time,

Is there a plugin or a setting, in which I can fix this thing,

Hope to hear some feedback,

Thanks in advance,

You could try increasing cache size

Tools > Options > Advanced > Network tab

try increasing to something like 200MB (mine was at 50MB - probably default)

I tried testing it a little but I have broadband so it's difficult to tell, unless I found a very large video.

You could also try the MozillaZine Forums for info.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
