Everything is stored in the appdata folder on the memory stick.

Correct, as long as you don't crash PortableFirefox or its launcher.

Nope all that should be saved in portable firefox's cache folder

OK, I give up - three people have told you the same answer, and you're still asking? Seriously dude, you need to just accept it and move on. Endlessly reconfirming the same point over and over just gets boring.


wheres the cache folder?
The cache folder doesn't usually exist on PortableFirefox, because it's disabled - one of the many settings tweaked by default to prolong the life of your drive. Last time I looked, it used ram cache only.

I was only asking. I didn't mean to sound like an idiot

Apologies for any offense, that wasn't my intention, and I certainly wasn't intending to call you an idiot. I was just pointing out that your question had already been answered.
