FindFile and FireFox cache

Postby mathgod » February 26th, 2010, 4:23 am

I am considering a cache editing project. Is there a way to use FindFile to locate a file in the FireFox cache? I can locate the cache folder but the files have a set file name length and no extension.

I have a project that creates gameSettings.xml.gz after editing gameSettings.xml in NotePad++. If the user wishes to edit the FireFox cache, there is a modal form where the user enters the path to the file for gameSettings.xml.gz to be copied to. The project works but I would like to try to eliminate the step of using the CacheViewer add-on to find the file name.

I think there is no cache folder. My FireFox (v3.6) uses SQLLite to store cache files.

I am using 3.5.8 and the cache folder is C:\Documents and Settings\[user name]\Local Settings\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\[profile name]\Cache\. I may upgrade soon to see if this changes for me.

I upgraded to 3.6. A few of my add-ons like dig and fetch are broken now. Oh well...

FireFox 3.6 is still using the same cache folder. Using CacheViewer I get this information for the cached gameSettings.xml.gz file.
Code: Select all

How about locating the file base on its content?

This is a good idea. I will try it.
