Unfortunatly, that doesn't show up on my version of FF or I am just not seeing it. I don't have a Tools button. Where is it located, because I am not seeing it.

Thank you in advance

On which platform are you?

Instead of Tools > Options use:

  • Mac: Firefox > Preferences
  • Linux: Edit > Preferences
  • Windows: Firefox > Options

Press F10 if the menu bar is hidden on Windows and Linux or use "Firefox > Options/Preferences"

Also Firefox does not use the temporary internet files that IE uses but rather a Cache.

You can type about:cache in Location (address) bar to view and see where it is located.

For the complete list of files Firefox download to the computer you can see by typing about:cache on your address bar. It will show you exact file names, storage in use, number of entires and exact location with sizes and dates. Attached example
