Cache Question

Can't we use browser.cache.disk.enable=false instead of browser.cache.disk.capacity=0 ?

It's better

Using "browser.cache.disk.enable=false", Firefox doesn't create the "Cache" directory in the profile folder ;).

Hmm

Why would one need that folder anyway?

I suspect it's done that way to make it easy to reenable the cache if you so desire (e.g. if you're running Portable Firefox from an HDD). There's no interface to browser.cache.disk.enable in Preferences.

See, sometimes you have to think outside of the box. Or in your case, Ryan, outside of the hole. Wink

Exactly

That's why it's set to zero.

And also

One of the reasons I pulled the cache options from Sync!
