... so you may never see a "0" there.
^ Thanks very much for the reply
-- I hope I am not causing any disapproval for following up on this (perhaps I've done a poor job at explaining here... which it appears I'm perhaps guilty of too much of the time on this board that can unfortunately lead to my comments being misconstrued at times...
To clarify; I'm talking about when I click on the "Clear Now" button multiple times
, in the Preferences/Advanced/Network interface, which has
in the past consistently caused the "Web Content Cache of Disk Space used" value to continue to reduce until the value of "0" is reached given enough clicks
on the "Clear Now" button. I have no idea why for the past few weeks the value would, no matter how many "Clear Now" clicks were performed, continue to reduce but in each case stop at 51KB every time even if the value was below 51KB at which the time surprisingly in these cases (below 51KB) the value would actually increase -- that is jump up to 51KB in one "Clear Now" click and remain there regardless of any additional "Clear Now" clicks that are done. The only reason I had noticed this recent odd behavior was during my testing of the Citibank website over the past couple of weeks or so when I would repeatedly get this result as described (including earlier today when addressing this current issue as well)... (I only bring up this last point to explain why it is that I would have noticed this recent cache behavior that doesn't correspond with what I've consistently experienced in the past and as such in not intended to reflect negatively toward the Pale Moon browser that I'm so very fond of.).
That said, to my total surprise, I now have to add that for whatever reason just checking this out again the past few minutes what I used to get (that is the cache value reaching "0") after a number of "Clear Now" clicks I am once again getting (after repeated testing of this I might add). So it appears the clearing of cache is back to what I'm used to getting again
My example below took 4 "Clear Now" clicks to reach the "0" Bytes value (the number of clicks necessary have always varied depending upon where the cache starts):
I bring this up to make sure that the result I usually get (that I've generally always gotten in the past and now am getting again) is to be expected (I welcome anyone who wants to check it out specific to them to confirm). I'm assuming this to be the case for everyone (with that perhaps I'm discussing a different method of clearing cache than referenced above that is causing some misunderstanding).... And I hope I've conveyed my point in a way where there can be no misunderstanding.
(I was reluctant to bring this up -- but I'm hopeful that an open and fair minded discussion can always be the expectation for all of us in this forum which in most cases most assuredly helps thankfully serve the Pale Moon community so extremely well.
