Just trying to clear some data and the app cache for Firefox is 1.17 gigs large...Any way to clear it through the file system?

Posted

Just trying to figure out why when I clear the Firefox app cache through the app prefrences it doesn't seem to clear the cache shown in the sc. I once found the app cache in the file system but I forgot where to go to find it and I would like to have the space back. I would also like to know if Firefox files identify themselves under any other name than having "firefox.app". (as an example like maybe .frf?)
