——-
firefox browser cache settings are  Edit -> Preferences -> Advanced (then clicking the ‘network’ tab)

Note:-default cache size is 50Mb

window allows you to change the size of the cache – probably 10Mb is a better

size choice. There’s also a button to clear the cache.
The cache files are under the Cache folder.

Another way to changing the setting

type about:config  in the firefox address bar:
the applicable parameter ‘browser.cache.memory.capacity’ is highlighted here

(note it’s set to 50000 Kb which is equivalent to 50Mb). Double clicking on this parameter allows one to change the value to something smaller 10000 (10Mb).
