Old cached files can occasionally cause a website to function incorrectly, and the process of “clearing” your browser’s cache can often fix many internet-related problems.

Click CTRL+SHIFT+DELETE (or CMD+SHIFT+DELETE for Mac users) on your keyboard to bring up a shortcut to the cache-clear menu in most web browsers.
