    Cache folder in Firefox

    I can't find how to change the cache folder in Firefox! The only option that I can see in "Tools->Options->Privacy->Cache" is the maximum used disk space.
    In Mozilla suite I can choose a specific folder with "Edit->Preferences->Advanced->Cache" and it seems to me this feature has been removed in Firefox.
    I also unsuccessfully tried with "about:config" (discovered in the "Speed Tweaks For Firefox" thread started by Conan).

    I don't know how to change the cache folder 'cause I rarely use Firefox or Mozilla. But I think you can find the folder by typing this in the "Run..." dialog box:
    %userprofile%\APPLICATION DATA\

    Then try to look for a folder that's called Mozilla or Firefox.
    I'm not sure though.

    type about:config in firefox

    right click and select new string


    string: browser.cache.disk.parent_directory
    value: C:\your new directory name\

    you can view your cache by typing
    about:cache

    memory or disk

    Great! Thank you very much egghead.
    Do you now other hidden commands like about:config, about:cache?
