Firefox/Mozilla cache cleaning was skipped.

Recommended Posts

Under what conditions does the message in the subject appear? From the exported log file i see:

 

Firefox/Mozilla cache cleaning was skipped.

C:\Documents and Settings\owner\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\cgo3pyp7.default\formhistory.sqlite 7 KB

 

Thanks in advance

You see that message when you run CCleaner with Firefox running. Due to the way Firefox is built CCleaner can't clean its cache files while it's open so skips them and provides that message :)

Does the cleaning take place at the next reboot?

No, it's skipped completely if Firefox is running

Might be a good thing to consider adding some delayed cleaning at reboot....

There is an option to run CCleaner on Boot.

It skips Firefox Cache because cleaning the cache while Firefox(.exe) runs, would perhaps crash Firefox.

why? If you want the cache cleared on exiting set firefox to handle it.

If you go to the menu bar at the top of the firefox window, click Tools>Options, then in options window click on "Privacy". Towards the bottom of the privacy section tick the box for "Clear history when Firefox closes". You can then click the "Settings" button next to it and select what you want to be cleared on FF shutdown

This is not being sarcastic or any thing, but in future use google for questions like that.

 

"set firefox to clean the caches when exiting please?"

ident I thought the poster asked for help on how to do what he wanted to do in a perfectly polite and reasonable manner.

 

Plus JD Power has been kind enough to reply thus giving other Firefox/Ccleaner users the knowledge on how to do this as well :)

I know that, hence why i said this is not sarcastic. I was trying to help them learn by using google, as waiting for an answer can some times take a while.
