New location of cache in Firefox 21

This was an annoying change for me and had to dig a bit to find it.

The location in Linux (Ubuntu) changed from:
/home/jw/.mozilla/firefox/fulj69t5.default/Cache
to:
/home/jw/.cache/mozilla/firefox/fulj69t5.default/Cache

There is also a seemingly new “thumbnails” that grabs a screenshot of each webpage we visit:
/home/jw/.cache/mozilla/firefox/fulj69t5.default/thumbnails
