Mozilla Firefox is a Free and Open Source [[Web Browser|web browser]] developed by the Mozilla Foundation.
  
== Java WebStart Cache ==
+
It can have many [http://addons.mozilla.org add-ons] which give it extra capabilities.
As of Java version 6 the Java WebStart Cache can be found in the following locations.
+
  
On Linux for user accounts:
+
== Anonymous Browsing ==
<pre>
+
Mozilla Firefox can be used in anonymous browsing (see [[The Onion Router]]). However, it is known that Firefox reveals computer's uptime in TLS (SSL) "Client Hello" packets allowing investigator correlate anonymous and non-anonymous traffic [http://archives.seul.org/or/talk/Apr-2008/msg00050.html].
/home/$USER/.java/deployment/cache/
+
 
</pre>
+
This bug affects Firefox 2 (all versions) and Firefox 3 Beta3.
 +
 
 +
== History ==
 +
Firefox 3 stores the history of visited sites in a file named '''places.sqlite'''. This file uses the [[SQLite database format]].
 +
 
 +
'''places.sqlite''' can be found in the following locations:
  
On MacOS-X for user accounts:
+
On Linux
 
<pre>
 
<pre>
/Users/$USER/Library/Caches/Java/cache/
+
/home/$USER/.mozilla/firefox/$PROFILE.default/places.sqlite
 
</pre>
 
</pre>
  
On Windows XP  for user accounts:
+
On MacOS-X
 
<pre>
 
<pre>
C:\Documents and Settings\%USERNAME%\Application Data\Sun\Java\Deployment\cache\
+
/Users/$USER/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/$PROFILE.default/places.sqlite
 
</pre>
 
</pre>
  
On Windows Vista and later for user accounts:
+
On Windows XP
 
<pre>
 
<pre>
C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\LocalLow\Sun\Java\Deployment\cache\
+
C:\Documents and Settings\%USERNAME%\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\%PROFILE%.default\places.sqlite
 
</pre>
 
</pre>
  
On Windows Vista and later for system accounts:
+
On Windows Vista, 7
 
<pre>
 
<pre>
C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\AppData\LocalLow\Sun\Java\Deployment\cache\
+
C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\%PROFILE%.default\places.sqlite
 
</pre>
 
</pre>
  
On Windows Vista and later for system accounts using SysWOW64:
+
=== Timestamps ===
 +
The places.sqlite uses the following timestamps.
 +
 
 +
The '''moz_historyvisits.visit_date''' is in (the number of) microseconds since January 1, 1970 UTC
 +
 
 +
Some Python code to do the conversion into human readable format:
 
<pre>
 
<pre>
C:\Windows\SysWOW64\config\systemprofile\AppData\LocalLow\Sun\Java\Deployment\cache\
+
date_string = datetime.datetime( 1970, 1, 1 )
 +
            + datetime.timedelta( microseconds=timestamp )
 
</pre>
 
</pre>
  
Note: there also can be an additional SystemCache directory e.g. on Windows Vista and later for user accounts:
+
=== Example queries ===
 +
Some example queries:
 +
 
 +
To get an overview of the visited sites:
 
<pre>
 
<pre>
C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\LocalLow\Sun\Java\Deployment\SystemCache\
+
SELECT datetime(moz_historyvisits.visit_date/1000000, 'unixepoch', 'localtime'), moz_places.url FROM moz_places, moz_historyvisits WHERE moz_places.id = moz_historyvisits.place_id;
 
</pre>
 
</pre>
  
Note that if JAR files are cached it does not imply that they have been executed. The behavior seen with Microsoft Internet Explorer in combination with JRE 1.7 in high security mode is that it will download the JAR file and then prompt the user if he/she want to execute the Java applet.
+
== Downloads ==
 +
Firefox 3 stores the history of downloads sites in a file named '''downloads.sqlite'''. This file uses the [[SQLite database format]].
  
== IDX file format ==
+
'''downloads.sqlite''' can be found in the same location as '''places.sqlite'''.
Caveat: The following information is based on analysis of several dozen *.idx files from different Windows 7 systems.  As such, the following information should not be considered to have been exhaustively researched.
+
  
Values are in big-endian.
+
'''Note it looks that Firefox 21 (or earlier?) stores the downloads as part of the bookmarks in moz_bookmarks and moz_annos in places.sqlite'''

+
For the example above the size of the URL string can be found at offset 130 (0x82). The first 4 string values to extract from this data are prefaced with their lengths (or sizes) as 16-bit big-endian values. E.g. to retrieve the original URL string, read the WORD at offset 0x82, and translate it as a big-endian value (e.g. using Perl, <i>unpack("n",$data)</i>). Beginning at offset 0x84, the string is 57 (0x39) bytes long. At the end of that string, the next WORD is the length of the third string, also in big-endian format.
+
  
Once you've completed reading the initial 4 strings, there is a DWORD value which can be interpreted as the number of header values, followed by the individual header value definitions. Each header value definition consists of an identifier and a value string. Both strings are prefaced by a 16-bit big-endian (2-byte) value, containing the length of the string.
+
== See Also ==
  
In many cases, the first header value contains the HTTP Response code of 302. Other header values (that have been observed so far) include a response of 200, as well as additional data (including time stamps), and the *.idx files themselves appear to contain certificate (and perhaps other) information.

Mozilla Firefox is a Free and Open Source web browser developed by the Mozilla Foundation.

It can have many add-ons which give it extra capabilities.

Contents

Anonymous Browsing

Mozilla Firefox can be used in anonymous browsing (see The Onion Router). However, it is known that Firefox reveals computer's uptime in TLS (SSL) "Client Hello" packets allowing investigator correlate anonymous and non-anonymous traffic [1].

This bug affects Firefox 2 (all versions) and Firefox 3 Beta3.

History

Firefox 3 stores the history of visited sites in a file named places.sqlite. This file uses the SQLite database format.

places.sqlite can be found in the following locations:

On Linux

/home/$USER/.mozilla/firefox/$PROFILE.default/places.sqlite

On MacOS-X

/Users/$USER/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/$PROFILE.default/places.sqlite

On Windows XP

C:\Documents and Settings\%USERNAME%\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\%PROFILE%.default\places.sqlite

On Windows Vista, 7

C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\%PROFILE%.default\places.sqlite

Timestamps

The places.sqlite uses the following timestamps.

The moz_historyvisits.visit_date is in (the number of) microseconds since January 1, 1970 UTC

Some Python code to do the conversion into human readable format:

date_string = datetime.datetime( 1970, 1, 1 )
            + datetime.timedelta( microseconds=timestamp )

Example queries

Some example queries:

To get an overview of the visited sites:

SELECT datetime(moz_historyvisits.visit_date/1000000, 'unixepoch', 'localtime'), moz_places.url FROM moz_places, moz_historyvisits WHERE moz_places.id = moz_historyvisits.place_id;

Downloads

Firefox 3 stores the history of downloads sites in a file named downloads.sqlite. This file uses the SQLite database format.

downloads.sqlite can be found in the same location as places.sqlite.

Note it looks that Firefox 21 (or earlier?) stores the downloads as part of the bookmarks in moz_bookmarks and moz_annos in places.sqlite

Timestamps

The places.sqlite uses the following timestamps.

The moz_downloads.startTime and moz_downloads.endTime are in (the number of) microseconds since January 1, 1970 UTC.

Example queries

Some example queries:

To get an overview of the downloaded files:

SELECT moz_downloads.startTime, moz_downloads.source, moz_downloads.currBytes, moz_downloads.maxBytes FROM moz_downloads;

Cache

On Linux

/home/$USER/.mozilla/firefox/$PROFILE.default/Cache/

On MacOS-X

/Users/$USER/Library/Caches/Firefox/Profiles/$PROFILE.default/Cache/

On Windows XP
