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:
  • Simple text messages using text/plain (the default value for "Content-Type: ")
  • Text plus attachments(multipart/mixed with a text/plain part and other non-text parts)
  • Reply with original attached (multipart/mixed with a text/plain part and the original message as a message/rfc822 part)
  • Alternative content such as a messagesent in both plain text and another format such as HTML (multipart/alternative with the same content in text/plain and text/html forms)
  • Image, audio, video and application (for example, image/jpeg, audio/mp3, video/mp4, and application/msword and so on)
  • Many other message constructs
- URL: This field displays the global address of documents and other resources on the World Wide Web.
- 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.
