Any form of viruses, trojans and other malware found in the Cache is harmless if left alone while there. Just clear your Cache or let it be overwritten.

See article: Firefox cache file was infected with a virus

The above article may not be maintained anymore but it still applies.

If it still worries you;

Location of the cache/cache2 folder; Windows: *C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<profile>\ Mac: ~/Library/Caches/Firefox/Profiles/ Linux: ~/.cache/mozilla/firefox/

Close Firefox. Open your file browser to the above, and remove the folder.

Note that each Profile you have use this folder so if you delete the cache folder you delete each cache used by each Profiles and not just the one Profile you were using.
