Re: [FireFox] Can't move cache folder to other location ? WFM.
What version of FF?
My first try didn't "*work".
Second thought was to double up the slashes & that looks to be the ticket.
Note that while new files go into new_CACHE the old Cache is left for you to manually purge.
Well I kind of expected something to populate the directory on restart, but that isn't necessarily the case.
Not seeing anything happen is what caused me to try the second method.
Going back, I see nothing gets entered into the cache until there is an actual need. So went back & only used single slashes, then visited a page, at which time the cacheDir did populate itself.
In any case, you might be better off with double-slashes (I see some of the SeaMonkey prefs use them, like: extensions.installCache).
Other then your "RAM" cache, are you able to get it to change to some other physical disk cache?

Thanks you therube for trying to help me.
I use Firefox 17.01,
Sorry but I did not understand (my poor English), where to use
There is no such entry into prefs.js nor into c:\
I have tried to add a line using user.js as I done with SeaMonkey , pointing to the Ramdisk (or any other location or partition/disk) and that does not work, even if the folder has been created manually before.
Can you elaborate much in details or step by step for a noob ?
