Tools/Options/Privacy & Security When I click the Clear Now box for Cashed Web Content it shows 1.1 MB. In the past it would show 0 MB when cleared. Is this something I should be concerned about security wise?

I just tried it in Nightly (future Firefox 59) and it showed 0 bytes. So it might be a bug that was fixed later on. You can type about:cache into the location bar and press Enter to see if anything is genuinely left over.

Thanks,
about:cache shows 0 bytes, so it must be a bug.
