    At <tools> <options> <privacy> I have my cache set to use up to 4000 KB
    of disk space for the cache.

    When I clear the cache, it is inconsistent in it's actions. Sometimes
    the "Clear" button becomes greyed out and stays greyed out preventing me
    from clicking it a second time until I click OK and reopen the <privacy>
    page again, but sometimes it becomes greyed out and then becomes
    selectable again and I can click it numerous times without it staying
    greyed out.

    Does anyone know why this happens? Should it? Does it mean anything?

    You are worrying about nothing. Your cache is never cleared until you
    shatter your HD into a million bits.

    Now after reading the post "Re: about: options" and entering
    "about:cache" I have discovered that when the "clear" button reappears
    and I can click it again, the cache **IS NOT** being cleared.

    Tis is not a direct answer to your question, but this is how I handled it
    (probabaly does not apply if you're on a dial-up or slow connection):

    In <tools> <options> <privacy> I set the value at 0 (Zero).
    I have DSL which usually runs at about 2.5 Mb down - so caching does not
    contribute a whole lot .
    By the same token, nothing goes into the "Cache" folder to be cleaned out
