you can see where by entering about:cache in the navigation bar window.

you can customise the location by typing about:config, then change the string variable browser.cache.disk.parent_directory to point to the new location's home.

i move mine to my d:\ drive in the root directory. it creates a 'cache' directory where you point the variable, ie. if browser.cache.disk.parent_directory = d:\ then the cache will be in d:\cache. if you set it to d:\cache\ the files will be in d:\cache\cache\ .
