IE = Local

IE Tab just instantiates the local IE browser. It's no different from running the local IE. It's just an easy and efficient way to do it without leaving Firefox for running sites like Windows Update. So, everything is stored locally.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

In my experience, it does

In my experience, it does put that stuff into %TEMP% (cookies and Temporary Internet Files). That can sometimes make it a bit hard to clear TEMP out after, since Explorer likes to keep index.dat locked. Not sure why it doesn't put them in the normal place IE stores such things.

Another reason for a future version of PAM/P to manage TEMP.

You could

You could try

C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Cookies\

Temporary files might be in something like

C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files

I suspect there are other places too, but those folders might be close.

Sometimes

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders

in the registry can help you find those things.
