Download the Firefox cache viewer plug-in. It displays all the files in your cache, and gives you options to save them (pictures, video, etc.) to disk if you want.

I found the folder as you said, but can't find much of the files.. suppose I can view in history of Mozilla lots of pics, and so many things. but in the folder you said just have some files.

Try this: C:\Documents and Settings\user\Local Settings\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\kjwk8m7kk.default\Cache or Cache(2) or uvbk6bhy.default\Cache(2) or Cache(3)

Look at any of the Caches and find your files. Hope this is what you want. Be sure you have selected in Folder Options, view Hidden files and folders.

Unlike Internet Explorer (Microsoft's built in net browser) which ships with all version of XP from 95 onwards, Firefox does not store temporary internet files as their separate file types. Instead it stores them in large data files of its own making. There is no way to access the files via the Windows file system then; all you can do to save the information is via the browser itself. If you are trying to save a streamed video file or mp3 etc. then the only way to do do is via a firefox extension.
You find current extensions here:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/2390

Alternatively if you are trying to access all the pics on a webpage, then press Ctrl+'S' or select 'File' from menu at the top and then 'Save Page As...'
In the drop down box for 'Save as type:' at the bottom of the dialog select 'Web Page Complete'.

See the screen shot here for a clarity:

Then ensure that you pay attention which directory you are saving to. Look in that directory for a directory with the same name as the html file you saved. In that directory you will find all the images, css, javascript and all other non-streaming files.

As I said to save streaming data you will need a pluggin/Add-ons, or as firefox calls them extensions.

All you do is to double click the file, when the Open With window opens up, select Firefox as the program you want to use to open the file and there you have it. Unfortunately just looking at the files does not tell you what it is, until you open it. Good luck.

The cache viewer extension is probably easier, but you can access the cache thusly:

Type about:cache in the location bar and press enter, then click "list cache entries".
