Sometimes it may be necessary to clear your browser's cache and cookie sessions. For Safari users this task is best accomplished by executing the following instructions from within the browser window:

  • Click the Safari drop down menu in the upper left-hand corner of the browser
  • Click Reset Safari
  • Make sure that Remove All Website Data is selected
  • Click Reset
  • Quit Safari and reopen

Older versions of Safari do not have the "Reset Safari" option. It is best practice to update to a current version, but these steps can be taken to clear the cache of an older version

  • Click Preferences
  • Click the gear icon labeled Advanced
  • Check the Show Develop menu in menu bar and exit
  • You will now see a new entry in the browser's top options bar called Develop
  • Click Develop
  • Click Empty Caches
