Thread: Where is Firefox's "Web browsing Cache" folder now kept in 12.3?

  1. #1

    Default Where is Firefox's "Web browsing Cache" folder now kept in 12.3?

    It is no longer where it was in Suse 11.4. It use to be in the .mozilla folder.


    Thanks.

    i think where the cache is stored is a function of which Firefox you
    are using and NOT which openSUSE version is installed..

    on my system, Firefox (version 21.0-75.2) has its cache in

    /.cache/mozilla/firefox/[random_hash].default

    Thanks.
    Have a look into:

    ~/.cache/mozilla/firefox/<your profile>.default/Cache/

    Thanks for the replies. I already found that location. There seems to be very little data stored there. Only images are in "thumbnails".


    Thanks

    Interesting. That's where firefox always kept its cache for me. But when I check now, I see that it has moved to the "$HOME/.cache/" location suggested by others.
