Mozilla Firefox won't clear cache totally.
I've tested in Linux and Windows versions, with FF 0.93 and 1.0.

Reporter, do you claim that there are still cache-files left behind ? Do you
have write-permission for them ? Maybe it's bug 203528 : check if you see an
error in the JavaScript console (Tools menu).

Or are you talking about the favicons ? Then it's a dupe of bug 253044.

Please set javascript.options.showInConsole pref to true in about:config
<http://kb.mozillazine.org/About:config> and try again. I think errors in chrome
files are not logged by default.

My experience is the same, despite the setting to not have the cache saved upon
exit, and not to have auto complete, the history list of web sites visited
remains in Mozilla and in IE -- this only happened AFTER I downloaded Mozille
Firefox, and was fine on IE prior to the download, when it cleared at every exit
without incident.  Mozilla seems to either not have the setting, or be
interfering with it  in some way, and leaves the history list of web sites
visited in the drop down box  at the top of the browser page.

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
Thank you for your help in this matter.
