Finding and editing Firestarter events log


Hi. There are far too many 'events' in Firestarter's log. I can't find which file contains the log either by searching my file system or the internet.

Does anyone know? Thanks.

If I understand what you mean, I think you can use grep -lir <pattern> <directory> to find out which file contains the log.

Thanks. Could you elaborate please? What would be the 'pattern'?
