For Firefox browser, the Cache Index file is under

/home/<user>/.mozilla/firefox/<randomdir.default>/Cache/

For instance on my system it is under

/home/saihari/.mozilla/firefox/lag760ed.default/Cache/

MozCache by default looks for the Cache under /home/<user>/.mozilla/ and may throw errors.

You can view the cache by default as a ree or a sorted list of files.
