Can't clear cache

more options

I could not clear a cache, so I checked about:cache and clicked "List Cache Entries". I found the cache that I could not clear had "Pinned" in Pinning section. I searched about Pinning in about:cache, but I could not. I'd like to know in what case a cache becomes "Pinned".

I believe it'd be related to pinned tabs. Do you have any pinned tabs?

I don't know about pinning, but: Location of the cache/cache2 folder; Windows: *C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<profile>\ Mac: ~/Library/Caches/Firefox/Profiles/ Linux: ~/.cache/mozilla/firefox/

Close Firefox. Open your file browser to the above, and remove the folder.

Thank you for your answer, but I don't have any pinned tabs.

Thank you for your answer. It helps me to fix the Pinned cache. However, I'd like to know in what case a cache becomes "Pinned".
