The Firefox cache temporarily stores images, scripts, and other parts of websites while you are browsing. Below are the explanation of some of Firefox caches and history.
Browsing history: List of web sites you’ve visited.
Saved forms and search history data: Your inputs in online forms and search history bars are saved by the Firefox web browser ONLY if you’ve instructed it to do so.
Cache: The web browser cache contains files from web sites that you’ve visited. These may include HTML pages, images, CSS files etc. So the next time you visit the web site, the browser simply fetches files from the cache (sometimes also known as temporary internet files folder) which helps in quicker display.
Cookies: Cookies are tiny files created by some web sites and stored on your computers’ hard disk.
Saved passwords: Firefox lets you save passwords to online services such as Gmail or Hotmail so that you don’t have to type these again.
