When I upload a file to the web using Firefox, I find an increasing number of now obsolete files sitting there, and I'd like to delete them, but can find no option to do so. Can you tell me how to do that ?

Hi,

Where are stored the files you have uploaded? In your Firefox history or elsewhere?

I do not know. The only way that I know of to trigger a view of them is by uploading another file

Click the Library button next to the address bar, and select History > Clear Recent History. In Time range to clear, choose Everything.

Next, under History, check the following boxes:
  • Browsing and Download History
  • Form & Search History


Then click the Clear Now button.

If this dosen't work, repeat the previous steps and include the Cookies and Cache options.

I will wait with trying that until there is another file to upload - I suppose i could upload a dummy file, but to where ? - then I'll be able to see if your procedure causes an effect.

You can upload a file to Google Drive for exemple.

I have heard of Google Drive, but have not used it - so are still at a loss. I avoid 'The Cloud' if I have the chance. I have tried to disable OneDrive.
