A few days ago I found a really cool video on youtube of an obscure band i like. I added it to my favorites and i was going to save it to my hard drive with the video downloader extension, but when I went to it I found out the user's account had been deleted. I can't find the video anywhere else unfortunately. Is there a way to retrieve this item from the firefox cache or would it not be there? Is there any other way I can get this video or am I just outta luck?

See if it's in your temporary file's, folder:
Click Start
Click Run
Type in: %temp%
Click OK

Or, you might find this extension more useful:

This extenion is GUI Front-end of "about:cache".
Allows searching and sorting memory and disk cache files.
