I found a trojan downloader in my mozilla\firefox\profiles\s32hycu.default\cache\849CB2C9d01 folder. Looks like it has got there with one of your firefox updates

For as far as I can see I've only dnld the skype toolbar for firefox 2.1.0.15 and I'm running firefox 1.5.0.7 The last trojan popped up after the update for firefox.
I can only see where the trojan horses (3) came from. They all originated in the aplication data folder for mozilla firefox. These are the names of the trojans: 
- Trojan horse Downloader.Generic2.EBC
- Trojan horse Pakes.W
- Trojan horse Downloader.Zlob.CU
If there is any more info you want please let me know.

Nope. This is your local FF cache where pages are stored that you have visited. Probably one of those websites tries to exploit some old security holes in IE or FF. But if your FF version is up-to-date and also other components on your PC are up-to-date (for example the Sun JRE, which is currently at Version 5.0 Update 6) then there should be no problems with this.
==>WFM, if you are worried about the warnings, clean your cache.
