Click the settings button in the Browsing History section to open the Temporary Internet Files and History Settings Screen.
We are only going to be altering the cache’s behavior, so the other settings can be left alone. Select the radio button for “Every time I visit the webpage” and click “OK”.
Add InfoEd.org to the list of trusted sites in the Security options for IE. This will ensure that none of the functions of the InfoEd Suite’s modules will be blocked by the browser.
Click the Security tab in the Internet Options to open the Security screen.
By default, the Security screen opens, displaying the options for overall internet security. Select the Trusted Sites icon to display the security settings for trusted sites. Click the Sites button to open the Trusted Sites listing in a new popup window.
Enter “infoed.org” (do NOT use the normal www in front of infoed.org) in the field provided and click the Add button to add it to the list of trusted websites. Your screen will refresh, and infoed.org is now considered a trusted site by Internet Explorer.
Once the site has been added, ensure that the checkpoint for “Require server verification (https:) for all sites in this zone” is unchecked. Click the Close button to register your changes and close the Trusted Sites screen.
In the Advanced options for IE, we are disabling the default behavior for displayed HTTP error messages. Doing so causes the browser to always display the maximum amount of information about any encountered errors.
Click the Advanced tab in the Internet Options menu to open the Advanced screen.
Scroll down the list of settings until you reach “Show friendly HTTP error messages” and uncheck its checkbox. Click the Apply button to register your changes.
Usually Internet Explorer’s popup blocker does not interfere with InfoEd’s system. However, if you have performed all of the previous setups for Internet Explorer and are still having problems with the modules not acting as they should, this final configuration may help.
Click the Privacy tab in the Internet Explorer Options menu to open the Privacy screen.
Turn off the popup blocker by unchecking the box next to “Turn on Pop-up Blocker” and then clicking the Apply button.
To access the Options menu, select Tools from the menu ribbon located at the top of the screen.
Once the Tools menu has opened, access the Options by selecting Options; the Options menu replaces the Opened Tools menu.
Each of these screens in the Options menu contains myriad setups used to tweak Firefox. We are interested in three settings: Privacy (to clear the cache), Advanced (to alter the default settings to eliminate Firefox’s cache), and Content (to turn off the popup blocker).
Click the Privacy icon in the Options menu to open the Privacy screen.
Click “clear your recent history” to begin. The Clear Recent History screen opens in a new popup window.
Select “Everything” from the Time range to clear pick list, ensure that the checkbox next to Cache is checked, and click the Clear Now button to clear Firefox’s cache.
Click the Advanced icon in the Options menu to open the Advanced screen.
Change the number of listed for Offline Storage to 0.
Click the Content icon in the Options menu to open the Content screen.
Turn off the popup blocker by unchecking the box next to “Block pop-up windows” and then click the OK button.
To access the Preferences, select Edit from the menu ribbon located at the top of the screen.
Once the Edit menu has opened, access the Preferences by selecting Preferences; the Preferences menu replaces the opened Edit menu.
The configurations in the multiple screens available in the Preferences control how Safari interacts with web sites and your computer.
Click the Advanced icon to open the Advanced screen.
Check the checkbox for “Show Develop menu in menu bar”. Once check, the menu appears in your ribbon. Close the Preferences by clicking the X icon in the top right corner.
With the Develop menu activated, Safari may now be configured quickly with just a few clicks. Begin by opening the Edit menu by selecting Edit from the menu ribbon.
Click Empty Cache to empty Safari’s cache of visited websites. Depending on our version of Safari, you may be asked to confirm the deletion; if so, confirm the deletion. With the cache emptied, you will be seeing the new version of the website and not the cached copy of it.
The cache will refill again as Safari is used to access website, so to prevent having to regularly clear it, we will disable it completely from the Develop menu.
Click Develop to open the Develop menu.
Scroll down and select Disable Caches to keep Safari from recreating its cache. Disabling caching can slow down internet browsing slightly because your browser will always re-download each visited website, but it will guarantee that you will also have the most recent information entered in every setup and record. Safari is now configured for use with the InfoEd Suite.
