Anyway, as I said above I recommend CCleaner for other purposes too. Just give the download.cnet review a read and see what you think.
Hope that helps.
I have CCleaner and it doesn't delete any content from this folder

-->Local disk ( C: )-->Windows-->Temp

it deletes files only from this one

AppData-->Local-->Temp

No,FF is not set to Clear history when FF closes.

Its the same if i watch with Chrome or IE.

Can you not manually delete the files?

Problem is not in that. When i close FF i get diskspace back. I was watching yesterday 2 hours Sony pressconference and C drive was starting to run out of space. I just want to get to the bottom of it why this folder is eating my drive space while watching online videos.

The only answer I can come up with is that it temporarily downloads the video but deletes it when your browser closes.

No, I don't think it is. Every image you open, video you watch, music you listen to on the web, will download a temporary file. The web content and pages that you download is what uses up bandwidth. If it doesn't save a temp file then that's when you have a problem. Take a look at these links (some are slightly different to internet temp files but it's the same concept):
