Hmmm, there is no directory on my system in /var/cache which is named as 
it would be likely that it contains a browser cache:

merkaba:~> ls /var/cache
apt                dictionaries-common  modass
apt-listbugs       dirmngr              pbuilder
apt-show-versions  flashplugin-nonfree  pm-utils
apt-xapian-index   fontconfig           powertop
cups               git                  samba
debconf            ldconfig
debtags            man
