Where does Firefox store email images?

I have a yahoo email account that I accidentally deleted before saving one of the image files.

When opening the email I can see a thumbnail image of the picture and when I choose the "download" option to view the image I can see that the image downloaded to what I'm assuming is the cache and the image opens in the Pictures/Fax viewer.  From the Firefox download options I chose to Open the file only, not to Download the image to my drive.

My question is - is that image file that "downloaded" saved anywhere as a temp file or is it erased once the email/picture is closed?  This happened 2 days ago and I have not cleared any of the temp files from my computer.  Thank you in advance.

Hello,

The location is this:

\Documents and Settings\[username]\Local Settings\Application
Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\[profilename]\Cache

Make sure that you have hidden files on.  To do that open My Computer>Tools>Folder Options.  Click on the view tab and check the box to show hidden files and folders.

That will allow you to see the folders mentioned above.  Also this article might be of some usefulness to you:

Although I was unable to find the image I was looking for I was able to see where it would have been stored.  I must have waited too long to retrieve it.
