    Hey all, the limit for the cache in Firefox is 1024MB (1GB). I'd like to allow more drive space for the cache.
    My question is: Is there a hidden option or any way to allocate a larger amount of space to Firefox's cache? If so, what do I need to do to allocate more space?

    Nope.
    I tried it too but with no luck.
    It seems that for now 1GB is the limit until they decide to increase it in some future update. :(

    Can I ask what you want it for. If you are trying to rip flash/silverlight video there are usually far better ways* to say nothing of a lot of places segmenting nowadays as a protection against (easy) cache rips.
    *this should extend to the protected stuff but I have not kept current there.

    For the simple reason of having a large cache. I'm allocated 120GB of data a month, once that cap is reached, I get speed limited to roughly 30kb/s. It's a lot easier to load websites that are full of images when they're in the cache.
