request headers (and bodies) are cached too: where?

private (browser) caches such as Firefox's or IE6's store requests (headers, or for POST requests, headers and the POST data as the body) as well as responses.

Is it possible to see these somewhere on your machine, or are they only stored in volatile memory (because they're not needed beyond the session)?

You can view them in real-time with the Firefox extensions LiveHTTPHeaders or TamperData.

that's a useful extension; do you know where the request headers are stored during a session though? On disk (in which case can I view them) or volatile storage?
