How to clear Cache-Mozilla Firefox

What is a cache-Cache-Web cache or kash is an arrangement in a web browser to store images, HTML documents etc. temporarily. It stores data transparently in order to respond the future requests faster because as it reduces bandwidth usage and server load. The data stored might be a duplicate or may being used again and again. If the requested data is already stored in the cache browser will complete the request relatively faster and might be slower if the cache has to recomputed  or need fetch the data from the original storage source therefore as more as the requests responded from the cache data, the system performance will also be a little faster. But excessive storage in cache  may cause the system to run slow or even cause the firefox to crash therefore it is necessary to empty the cache frequently-

  2. Yes the verification of a blog or site by the search engine is absolutely necessary, whoever may be the domain name provider because most of the valuable services from the search engines are available to verified sites or blogs
