    Where is the cache located in the Firefox folder? I especially like to
    clear the browser after having done online banking. Are there any
    programs, cleaners, out there that erase the cache and sensitive
    information that may be contained within such as passwords and stuff?
    I'm always worried about being hacked and my banking account numbers
    stolen.

    Thanks,
    Nanci

    Type about:cache in the location (URL) box. It should tell you where
    the disk cache folder is located.

    I use the PrefBar extension to clear the disk cache.
    http://prefbar.mozdev.org/

    Firefox 2.0 can be made to clear private data in Tools > Options > Privacy.
