    Did you try "about:cache" in the address bar to see where firefox thinks it's cache storage is?

    the best place i've ever found for firefox cache location instructions is here: How to Change Cache Size and Location in Firefox

    I tried using the RAM drive for the Firefox cache, and it worked for me, and apparently set the cache entry in the Firefox configuration. But Firefox kept failing when I would run it, so I stopped using the RAM drive for its cache.

    If you are shutting down the PC, that clears the RAM drive. There is a box on the XFast RAM screen to "Back Up" the RAM drive. You need to enable that to preserve the Firefox cache contents. While it should create the Firefox cache when the PC is started again, it will be empty if you don't back it up. You must run Firefox before anything will be stored in the RAM drive.

    What synack wrote may be true, and is worth checking. Since I had problems with it, it may not be working correctly.
