Hey GUYS (and any LADIES that may work there....
First off, THANK YOU for TenFourFox - I have A PowerPC 10.5.8 and no other browser will work, as you all well know. SO happy you created this so the initial $4,000 I paid for this beast 10 years ago doesn't become totally obsolete other than video editing...

Okay - so in the past, when I go to Clear my Chache, I click CLEAR CHACHE and it clears it - now with this new update - it only removes 1MB at a time - so I have to click it 350 times to totally clear the cache. I can also HOLD the button down and manually count 1,2,3,4 and it is how fast it will delete the Cache.

Is there a way to fix this so 1 click removes all the cache???

PREFERENCES>ADVANCED>NETWORK - I don't even know why I included this - I know you all KNOW..

Thanks again for TenFourFox!!!

    I can reproduce this exactly as described. The thing is: The browser deletes the cash completely on the first click, only it takes a while and the numbers shown in the preferences pane update too quickly, i.e. before the process is finished. Instead of clicking the button repeatedly you can also just hit cmd+R several times to see how quickly the cache is emptied. Or wait a few seconds (depending on cache size), then hit cmd+R and it will be zero.

    Yes, I can reproduce it as well. It's not so much a bug as an assumption on Mozilla's part that disk writes are "free." I'm not really sure how to solve it other than just replacing the string with something like "Disk cache clearing in progress." or something, though that string doesn't exist in the locale that I've found.
