It doesnt work with ff 56
Firefox のキャッシュを表示してくれます｡ 非常に優秀なアドオンです｡ 特に､ Firefox がマルウェアに感染した場合などに役に立ちます｡ [マルウェアが､ どのタイミングで､ どこに通信しているか] を判断できます｡ それいがいにも､ Firefox やアドオンは起動時に [無駄で冗長な通信] を大量に実施しているため､ その観測にも使用できます｡
The add-on "CacheView" can indicate cache of Firefox. It is very useful. Especially, "CacheView" is useful when Firefox has been infected by computer virus. You can investigate with "CacheView" when and where computer virus sends information. Additionally, Firefox and add-ons send [much useless information] immediately after starting Firefox. You can observe it with "CacheView".
Instructions to open it: http://park2.wakwak.com/~benki/how_to_use_cacheviewer.html
Basically it's in tools> web developer in the menu, OR you can add it as an icon on the toolbar from customize. It's not obvious, should be included in the description of the add-on.
Otherwise, version 08361letfixed works fine on FF 52 Linux as it previously did in versions back to the original (when I was on Windows) years ago.
This addon will be ported to webextensions?
Just what I needed.
Entwicklungswerkzeuge > Dateien im Cache > .jpg > und man hat alle Bilder. Einfacher geht es nicht.
In FF 50.0.2 - It gives me the list of cached files, when I click on the one I am interested in it simply loads the live website, not the file from the cache. That is not the result I am looking for. How do I view the cached webpage?
I must admit I am amazed at some of the negative reviews here. With some trepidation I installed this add-on and it works perfectly. One must only have only a half a brain not understand how to access and use it because it's so damn simple.
Perhaps it doesn't work for you even though it works perfectly for others, don't you think you should investigate your installation/operating system et cetera, et cetera before giving a negative review
With this add-on, I finally can browse the cache, search and save files, even multiple files.
At first, I couldn't find where to start CacheViewer, It is on 'Tools -> Web Developer -> CacheViewer'.
A big cache may slow it a little bit.
Anyway, great add-on!
Muy bueno. Pude recuperar una imagen que necesitaba.
I wanted to save an audio file from a text to speech converter for fair (I believe) use in education. I started the plugin, as described onthe developer's site
entered mp3 into the search box and it found the text to speech audio files in my cache instantly. Now all I need to do is play them in my lecture.
I think that the developer should include instructions on how to use the plug in in a screen shot on this page because otherwise one would never find it.
no stars. This thing is a waste of time.
Doesn't work, just doesn't do anything: about:cache is exactly as it was before, nor I've found any other way to show anything else…
Please refer to http://park2.wakwak.com/~benki/how_to_use_cacheviewer.html
When I have this add-on enabled it pushed Firefox over 1 million in memory usage...
Hurray it works again.
Very useful add-on! Version 0.8.6.1-signed works very well with Firefox 38.0.1 on MacBookPro. I can't follow some complaints about the lack of documentation here. It's actually self-explanatory. Edit the preference of the add-on (show cache content in a new tab or window) in the add-on list, go to customization, drag the icon into the toolbar, you're done.
Difficult to find how to open extension (Tools | Web Developer | CacheViewer) and when opening it, it only works for five seconds or so then completely locks up Firefox with 100% CPU usage. Have to terminate Firefox and reopen it to get control back.
Not working on FF 38.0a1
It is just life saving!
Why the need to rely on Reviews to know how to use the add-on?..
After the message 'installed' there isn't an option to restart FF and after restarting it manually CacheViewer doesn't show anywhere (installed extensions, Tools > Web Developer, ...). I hope failed install didn't mess something up. FF 34.0.5
