do linuxs' internet browsers(or specifically firefox, which i am using)...


do linuxs' internet browsers(or specifically firefox, which i am using)...have a function (or annoyance) to store the browsed web page to a so called temp internet file floder...
because with that thing i have to clean my internet history every week...
it seems that firefox DO have that function because when i type www in the URL bar (you know what i mean)..there are some stored URLs show up for me to choose....

thanks

A related question:

Does Firefox have a feature that allows you to have a 'web archive'--that is, the complete webpage so that it can be viewed offline? Internet Explorer has a format called 'web archive *.mht' that does this, but so far, I haven't been able to find an equivalent feature in Firefox.

It seems like something Firefox would have--I just haven't found it yet.

File -> Work Offline

File -> Save Page As -> Web Page, Complete (As opposed to html only)

you mean the every webpage we browsed is stored in our Hard Disk so that we can view it offline...
the problem is that how can i delete the temp internet file or simple disable the feature to conserve some precious hard disk space???

In Firefox...

Go to Edit -> Preferences -> Privacy. There you will see "Clear" buttons on the right. There you have e.g. "History" which means the website addresses you have visited. Click on the [+] and add 0 days. This prevents the URLs from being stored.

"Cache" is where the browser stores everything you visit on the web. You may set it to 0, too. This means the cache takes 0 kb of your hard disk space, so nothing is stored.

You can also type about:cache in the address field to see everything that is stored in cache (mostly images).

Regards,
Bamse

Sorry that was "about:cache", not "about :cache". No space between them.
