Fire fox Temporary Internet files

Where does Firefox keep its temp files?

Mine is set at 50000kb but cannot find a location.

Help appreciated.

C:\WINDOWS\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\wugwh0ex.default\Cache (I'm using Win98se & one user profile). G

Mine is in C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\default.kxf\Cache

Any way of changing the location of this cache?

Can be done in IE can it be done in Firefox?

Fruit Bat /\0/\, copy and paste the following into your prefs.js file(it's located in the same folder as your cache folder).

user_pref("browser.cache.disk.parent_directory", "X:\\");

Just change X to whatever drive letter you want your cache on.

HTH, dagwoood.

For the second link (above) see Babe Ruth's post. Good question FB - I'm going to do it as well! G

Meant to add, just paste the new line at the BOTTOM of your prefs list.
