Good question.

I know where the cache is (C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox), but it doesn't appear that you can view individual files you've downloaded such as images like you can in IE.

Yeah - that's a little spooky. I just did a full system search for a small jpeg cached from a website I just viewed, and nothing turned up. I don't DL any content that'd be an issue, but some folks do, i.e. work machines that shouldn't have skinshots in their cache. I want to know where stuff that gets dl'd resides in case I need to really clean up my system...

Yeah, that's the folder. Everything should be in there.

I like the feature on the new version of FF I have which lets you clear everything with just one button.

whenever I download an image it pops up a box that gives me the option to "clean up"...assume that means dump the cache

// on my work computer I never'd download porn. I think they record everything so I play it safe.

No, that's just the download history you're clearing, not your cache.

The one thing I don't like about FF is that you can't pull a file form the cache (or I don't know how to, anyway). Sometimes it's nice to retrieve a video, for instance, from cache when the site doesn't give you a download link.

I'mma start a link on the FF forums...

I'm running the latest FF as well. Did a little digging - it sounds as though it caches to either memory or disk. And that there's supposed to be an option to select "disk" or "memory". I looked in the Tools>Options> pulldown and can't find any selectable caching options.

I'm trying to grab some small sequenced images that animate via javascript to recreate them on a page I'm building. Looks like I may have to use Explorer's cache. If you learn anything on the FF forum, lemme know. Hopefully in a thread titled "J's mama is so FOXY"

I'll let you know.

I found this cool extension that lets temporarily disably your cache, temporary files, etc. and turn it all back on (i.e., when you're done looking at pr0n or whatever).

Weird - the image files are in the Explorer Temp Internet cache, but I have Java disabled in IE, so I know they can't imagine they would have been dl'd via IE.
