Why does FF use the IE Temporary Internet Files directory?

November 30 0

I have used Firefox exclusively as my browser for the past 6 months. Recently, I checked my "Temporary Internet Files" folder, where IE stores visited pages, and found it full and up to date, even though I had deleted everything in it when I started using FF. Why is Firefox storing data in here? Please note: On my computer, I have set up the "Temporary Internet Files" as the IE cach folder...IT IS NOT THE FF CACHE FOLDER. Thanks for any help.
