What is the name of the current profile folder?

The cookies are stored in cookies.sqlite in the main profile folder. The cache is in a different location as you can see on the about:profiles and about:cache pages.

Firefox uses two locations for the Firefox profile folder. Location used for the main profile that keeps your personal data (Root Directory on about:profiles).

  • ~/.mozilla/firefox/

Location used for the disk cache and other temporary files (Local Directory on about:profiles).

  • ~/.cache/mozilla/firefox/
