firefox cache location?

i've searched here, google...and mozilla firefox site, and i can't find the answer to this simple question....where is the firefox cache located? i know how to clear it, how to make it bigger and smaller, but i cannot find the actual cache folder?
i use firefox-installer, installed on only my user account...and there is no temp or cache there...i know it's someplace because when i download things, i can right click on them and save them...but i would like to know where i'm saving them from...this is turning into a quest for me to find that cache...

btw, i use fluxbox as a window manager...dunno if that matters...
