Changing the stored cache size

Posted

In the previous version of Firefox, I had an optin to define the maximum cache size stored on my machine. Is there a way to do this in version 60.0.1?

You will have to modify the related pref(s) directly on the about:config page.

  • browser.cache.disk.capacity (max: 1048576; 1024 MB)
  • browser.cache.disk.smart_size.enabled

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can accept the warning and click "I accept the risk!" to continue.
