Can some one please help with a problem Im having. When I go on the internet using firefox 20.0.1 my hard drive fills up until I cannot use it anymore. It often happens whilst watching tv shows. Is there somewhere all the data is being stored which I can delete? I free up severall gb's each time by deleting old files but this is full again with in minutes. I have cleared all history which frees up a few mb's but that is all.
Any help would be much apprecitiated.
Thanks

It sounds like the hard drive is just too full, not really an issue with Firefox. All browsers cache data to the hard drive, when you are clearing the history, make sure you are clearing the cache also.

I'd suggest that you offload some of your files to an external hard drive. It's best to keep 20% of your hard drive free; going much less than that can cause the system to slow and Windows complain.

A useful tool for clearing out unnecessary temporary files is ccleaner it can often clear out quite a bit of space.

If you need further help it would be useful to know what size drive you have, and how full it is.
