Hi Can someone please help on my windows system under users\user\appdata\local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\zbue1cim.default-release there is a directory Cache2 which on occasion has contained 12000 files of up to 1.3Gb which is often mostly fragmented What is this used for and how can I get rid of it as I cant for the life of me see why a browser should have so many data files

That is where the browser stores data sent by websites. A lot of data is sent by websites to load their pages. Using the cache, the same data is only sent once, thus saving bandwidth.


Type about:preferences#privacy<enter> in the address bar. The button next to History, select Use Custom Settings.

Turn off Always Use Private Browsing Mode Turn on Remember My Browsing And Download History At the bottom of the page, turn on Clear History When Firefox Closes. At the far right, press the Settings button. Turn on ONLY Cache and Form And Search History leaving the others off.


Macs: Make sure you install Firefox properly and that you do not run Firefox from within the DMG (Disk Images) file. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-download-and-install-firefox-mac
