    go to the top of the screen
    Check Edit>Preferences>Privacy
    You will see what you need in there.

    Hope this helps.

    OR if you want the directory specifically, then it should be

    $HOME/.mozilla/firefox/<some-id-no>.default/Cache/

    the some-id-no differs from user to user. For eg. on my a/c on my linux box, it is qknpyb7a now. If I reinstall firefox, or I create a new profile, another id will be generated, etc.
    On your system, the id may be something else.
