Irregular Disk Caching on Mac - Where do these files go???

Veröffentlicht

I've noticed from time to time that Firefox doesn't place cache files in the normal ~/Library/Caches location. On rebooting, I cannot also locate any cache components (like startupCache.*.big) in a "Recovered files" folder in the trash. So in a case like this were the heck do these caches go and how can I get rid of them. I have an SSD that is about half full and the last thing I need is to have it filling up with stupid temporary internet files.

Thanks

"Recovered files" are temp files that Firefox creates for special purposes including clipboard actions.

See:

You can try to set this pref to true on the about:config page.

  • browser.helperApps.deleteTempFileOnExit = true

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can accept the warning and click "I accept the risk!" to continue.

Thanks so much for the reply but in this case, as stated in my original, the caches aren't even making it to the Recovered files in the Trash. Am thinking it is more likely it's getting bogged-down in var/vm somewhere.
