How do I clear my browser's history/cache?

Clearing the browser history / cache fixes 99% of all problems our users have with accessing resources from off-campus. The most important things to clear are your browsing history and temp files.  You do NOT have to delete your saved passwords or form-fill data. If you've never cleared your browser before, these steps may take a few minutes.

IMPORTANT: Make sure you RESTART your browser after you've cleared it.
