Clear Cache and reset about:config from commandline

已張貼

Hi all,

I would like to run a batch script (on windows 7/10) to do the following to my FireFox (52.3.0 ESR): - Clear the cache - Reset the about:config settings

is there a way to do so form outside the browser so that I don't need to touch the mouse, as I want to embed it into an existing script.

KR, Paul

For prefs that are modified and show user set (bold) you need the prefs.js file in the main profile folder.

Note that you can find buttons on the about:profiles page to go to both locations Firefox uses for the Firefox profile folder.

Location used for the main profile that keeps your personal data in "AppData\Roaming" (Root Directory on about:profiles).

  • C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<profile>\
  • ~/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/<profile>/

Location used for the disk cache and other temporary files in "AppData\Local" (Local Directory on about:profiles).

  • C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<profile>\
  • ~/Library/Caches/Firefox/Profiles/
