Speed up Firefox with write enabled cache

Today I’ve read a marvelous way to make Firefox a whole lot faster, here is to do so:

Just follow these instructions — and don’t worry, if you mess it up, you won’t break anything.

  • Type about:config into the address bar
  • Type browser.cache into the Filter field
  • Set browser.cache.disk.enable to false (double click it)
  • Set browser.cache.memory.enable to true (double click it)
  • Right click > New > Integer; type browser.cache.memory.capacity; press OK
  • Type in 100000 (this is equivalent to 100 megabytes); press OK
  • Close all Firefox tabs and windows, and then restart the browser

If you want more than 100 megabytes of cache — if you have lots of spare memory, or you’re prone to mammoth browsing sessions — type in 500000 instead for 500 megabytes of cache. To confirm everything is working, visit about:cache and you should see some ‘Memory cache device’ information.

This is tested with Firefox 3.7 & 4

So far so good. But if there is a network share on this letter, Windows will use it anyway for the new USB drive, because network shares are specific to the current user and not visible in the context of the system where the letter is assigned
