Cache in Firfox is stored as large chunks of aggregated files, which are
often hard to interpret as-are. In Linux, Firefox cache is located under:
...but, but, but...
In Windows XP it should be under your profile's "Application
Settings/Firefox/<user>/Cache" or some variation of that. I cannot recall
the exact location, but it's there...
For completeness, in Mac OSX, it should reside under a similarly structures
directory while the installation paths are (by default):
And in Windows:
C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\
These are all valuable locations to keep in mind if you ever wish to extend
Firefox to include search plug-ins, user-tailored CSS files, and more.
There's also the issue of profile duplication and backup.
Hope it helps,
