If I'm not mistaken the browser itself does not have any cache (not that way you mean anyways) as this is set on the server, not client.

If you type in about:config in the URL bar of firefox, and type cache into the filter bar you'll see some of the settings that browsers will use for cache though, but this is used for storing data not a time duration.
