    Firefox cache?

    Trying to workaround a new youtube bug, so I'm trying to find the multimedia cache in firefox. Wher eis it? I've seen people say .mozilla/whatever, but where is the .mozilla folder? usr? there are dozens and dozens of folders, and it isn't in the top folder, and I can't find it yet. anyone?

    On another note, it looks like I'm back to ATI.

    It's been moved to ~/.cache/mozilla in recent versions of Firefox (or maybe in Ubuntu 13.04) but that's where it is for me on Lubuntu 13.04.


    If I may make a suggestion ... do mention the version of *buntu and the relevant software in the post itself even if it is your signature or next to your name (for the Ubuntu version).

    As vasa1 pointed out the mozilla/firefox cache folder is in the ~/.cache folder, which is a hidden folder in the home directory.
    Same goes for the .mozilla folder, if you want to know where that was.
    Just ctrl+h to show hidden files and folders.
