Playbook simulator browser options



Does anyone know how to delete the cookies, cache etc for the browser in the playbook simulator. I can't seem to find an options setting.


At the moment I am using the Power-Reset which is a bit painful to do everytime.

Re: Playbook simulator browser options

The browser application does have an options screen, however it does not appear to be working in the current version of the PlayBook simulator.


To get to the options screen: while the browser application is open, click on the black bevel and the top of the simulator and swipe down.  This should open the browser's menu, which should have an "Options" button in the top right corner.

The options button indeed appears.


However, clicking it doesn't seem to actually do anything...

Re: Playbook simulator browser options

yes you are correct the options button does not work!


Is there anyway to delete the cache, databases and cookies without having to create a new virtual machine everytime I need to reset.


It  takes me 10-15mins everytime I need to retest something from a base level. i.e application cache, database creation etc.


Anyone have any ideas, its driving me mad!

It didn't look like there was an existing issue for this so I've opened it here:https://www.blackberry.com/jira/browse/TABLET-95
