The recent update by Microsoft and Firefox totally screwed up my computer. It is so slow to respond with constant iterations of "Program Not responding" that it is completely unusable in most cases. It crashed Thunderbird and I lost many years of data and email that is completely unretrievable. I do not want EDGE or anything to do with it, but Microsoft has made plain their intent to force it on me by making nothing work . Is there a fix without going yo Linux?

Setting browser.cache.disk.parent_directory to dynamic location (different for each user)

I’m attempting to set browser.cache.disk.parent_directory in about:config to a custom dynamic path string using the Windows %username% variable in order to make it so that each Windows account has its Firefox cache in a different location that is somewhere other than each user’s AppData. What I tried to use was this:

T:\Users\%username%\Firefox\Cache

However, that created a folder path with %username% (literally, not substituted by its value as a Windows variable) as part of it. Is there some way for me to accomplish this?
