    It's really not necessary, just use the Tools - Clear recent History in FF

    and do
    Clear Temp Files at Boot - openSUSE Forums
    Leap 15.1_KDE

    Why don't U limit the cache size?
    in firefox type this URI:
    about:config

    filter the keyword: cache
    and set browser.cache.disk.capacity between 100000 and 200000 (100M and 200M) when your browser fills up the cache it will reuse it and it won't go above the set limit (mine is 200M)

    I checked and mine is set at 51,200. (I assume that's the default.)
    Maybe I'm not understanding. If I set it between 100,000 and 200,000 won't that allow even more junk to accumulate?

    thx

    You are quite correct
    You can also view this in the Prefs - Advanced - network - Offline Cache

    In theory the junk is for our benefit.

    - Firefox has an addon called Configuration Mania. It basically adds a GUI to about:config.

    - About:Config entries is a good reference page that describes all preference variables (mostly).

    - I use the FireFox All-in-one-sidebar, and it has a pull down for all the about:'s. Like "about:cache?device=disk" or "about:support".

    - You can change where FireFox keeps its temporary directory by adding:
    Browser.cache.disk.parent directory, and then use YaST sysconfig variables for cron/tmp to cleanup on boot.

    - Just came across bleachbit mentioned in this forum. Looks like it'll do a good job cleaning up junk left by applications, among other things.

    I have looked in both /tmp and in /.kde but don't see what I'm looking for. (Maybe I'm not seeing what's right there in front of my face??)

    Many thanks.
