I had experience [this](https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1236971) problem last year in the month of October. Now i get this again.This time i have 2 Trojan viruses in my cache.Now what has Firefox done to eliminate this problem.Can't this problem be eliminated altogether. I have gone through this but its just a temporary solution.I don't wan't Trojan's in my cache to creep in altogether.

My reply from that thread:

You are Not infected with a Trojan as it will either get overwritten over time as Cache gets used or deleted if you manually clear the Cache in Firefox.

This may be a older article but it still applies = Firefox cache file was infected with a virus
