How can I recover a page that has expired from the Firefox cache?

Long story short, I have a private server at localhost that I run. I had two pages (important essays I wrote) that I basically deleted from my database. The Firefox cache only had one of the two essays; I'm guessing I visited the other page too long ago (though it was only a couple days ago). Is there any way to recover this?

Try going into Firefox offline mode and opening the page. If it opens, then you're in luck

Nope, only the page that was in my cache was available. – Hilbert Sep 2 '13 at 13:27
