    Hi Papanata, Welcome to the forums!

    I would like to point you to the following website to help you understand Linux file structure. Linux Directory Structure (File System Structure) Explained with Examples

    In order to become successful with Linux you don't need to know everything about the file-structure of Linux. Being familiar and having a general idea of where things are located will help immensely.

    The directory I believe you are looking for can be found under
    Code:
     /usr/lib/firefox
    Another thing in Linux you will need to be comfortable with is the terminal.

    Using the Terminal

    Hope that helps!

    Hello there, you can see the firefox directory cache location if you open a firefox window and type the following.
    about:cache
    This link below may help a bit, look under section 7. That shows the cache location on that particular computer.
