In Firefox Mobile and Firefox it would be useful to clear history and cache of websites visited that is older than a certain amount of time or before a specific date. For example, clear data that is older the 3 months, or older 6 months, or older than 14.04.22. At the moment you can only clear recent data or everything.
This would allow you to free space used up by cached files on websites that you are not visiting frequently or recently. This is particularly handy if your mobile device does not have much free storage, but you still want to benefit from reduced download time of having cached files from websites you visit regularly or websites you have visited recently and will look at again soon but will not likely visit again in the long term.
Thank you for upvoting this idea!
firefox should develop a way to automatically clear cached web content without clearing site data.
Thanks for submitting an idea to the Mozilla Connect community! Your idea is now open to votes (aka kudos) and comments.
It would also enhance tracking protection. I’m absolutely in.
Add-on > "Clear Cache"
I hope that's what you're looking for
This definitely requires several clicks to get to, but:
On the Settings page, Privacy and Security panel, Cookies and Site Data section, the "Clear Data" button lets you clear the web cache without clearing other data -- just make sure to un-check the other box:

exists but i dont think is used anymore?
@AnonymousI probably should have mentioned the option to clear various types of personal data automatically when Firefox closes.
It's critical to use the "Settings..." button to specify what you want to clear to avoid flushing data you want to keep.
@jscher2000 The idea I have already mentioned is that it is not hoped to delete all caches every time Firefox closes.
