Mozilla Firefox Internet Browser data allows the user to view the contents of the History and Cache data created by the Mozilla Firefox browser.|
The History data created by Mozilla Firefox is displayed in a grid with the following columns:
- Title: This field contains the defined title of the document. It defines the title in the browser toolbar, provides a title for the page when it is added to favorites, and displays a title for the page in search-engine results.
- Visit Date: This field contains the date and time of the last page visit.
- Visit Count: This field contains the number of visits to the page.
- URL: This field contains the global address of documents and other resources on the World Wide Web.
- Referrer: This field contains a URL of the previous webpage from which a link was followed (the URL of a previous item which led to this request).
- Record Index: This field contains a unique index of the database where Firefox history information is stored.
- Visit Type: This field shows the way in which the user visited the page (link, bookmark, permanent redirect, etc.).
The Cache data created by Mozilla Firefox is displayed in a grid with the following columns:
- Name: This field contains the file name of Cache data.
- Type: This field contains an extension of the file and a full name of the file type to which the files with such extensions belong.
- Content Type: This field contains an extension of the file and the Internet media type of the content. This mechanism supports the following types:
- File Size: This field contains the length of a Cache data file in bytes.
- Fetch Count: This field shows the number of requests to a web server for a Cache data file.
- Last Modified: This field contains the date and time the Cache data file was last modified.
- Last Fetched: This field contains the date and time the Cache data file was last accessed.
- Expiration Time: This field contains the time when the Cache data file will expire (after this time, cache always checks back with the origin server to see if a document is changed).
- Server Name: This field contains a fundamental part of the Domain Name System, which allows websites to use domain names instead of IP addresses, which are much harder to remember.
- Server Response: This field contains a part of the status code, which is created in response to the server request (the status of this request gives information about your site and the requested page).
- Server Time: This field contains the time taken to respond to the server request.
- Server Last Modified: This field contains the last modified date and time of the file on the server.
- Content Encoding: This field contains a type of encoding used for the Cache data file.
- Cache File Name: This field contains a unique Cache data file name. This name allows you to quickly find often-needed files (Introduction of such names allows you to locate files by name, without having to remember exactly where they are located).
- Cache Control: This field contains information that is used to specify directives that must be obeyed by all caching mechanisms along the request/response chain. (This information tells all caching mechanisms from the server to client whether they may cache this object).
- Etag: This field contains information which is used to determine if a cached version of the requested resource is identical to the current version of the resource on the server.
