Glad to hear it Blinky, welcome aboard, I hope it works out for you, there is a learning curve with Linux but really it isn't too steep if I can use it anyone can, and remember if you need any help on the way there's a few smart people here (not including myself) who are only too willing to help.

I can't help you much with you internet cache query I don't use Firefox but here's a link that should help

Good luck

There are a ton of firefox addons to manage the cache and clear cookies etc ;)

But n I'm pretty sure you can tell Firefox to clear the cache as it closes without an addon

Yep, in Firefox go to

Edit > Preferences > Privacy

and set

History
Firefox will: use custom settings for history


Some extra options will become available, and you can tell it to clear the cache as you close Firefox .. amongst other things :)

Put a tick in "Clear history when Firefox closes" .. then click the "Settings" button to choose what you want to clear on shutdown .. including history, cache, cookies, etc.

You can also use Bleach bit and tick the boxes that apply to Firefox.
