Where are Firefox's temp files? Looking for an audio file I want to save.

Posted

In MS-IE, there is an option to display all the temporary internet files, which can then be copied to other folders to save them. In this case, I'm trying to find an audio file that was apparently downloaded from a seminar, because it played in its entirety without an internet connection. So anyway, where do I look, i.e. in what folder, does Firefox store its temporary files?

hello bwgore, you can access the temp files when you type "about:cache" into the firefox address-bar.
