I own a Crucial M4 128 GB from a few months and i'm very happy with it.
Immediately after i install it, i move Firefox cache on my Western Digital HDD.
I was wondering if this was a good decision or if it's ok to leave the cache on the SSD.
I was reading somewhere that their lifespan is longer than what someone could believe.
What you recommend to do then ?
Leave the cache on a mechanical HDD or in the SSD ?
Thanks in advance !

Leave all the Firefox settings default, or disable disk cache completely - don't move it to a slow drive! That m4 drive will outlive you!
Firefox - no matter how it's configured - always seems a tad slow. There's nothing you can do to make it feel like Chrome or IE9, so don't wrack your brain over it.

yup, no need to move it anywhere, you won't wear out the drive, or even come close

I agree entirely with post 2. You should leave your cache on the SSD. And firefox is slow.
