Firefox cache

Hello !

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 !

Re: Firefox cache

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.

Re: Firefox cache

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

Re: Firefox cache

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