How do I change the cache location

How do I change the cache location where Firefox temporarily places files that are being downloaded? I have already changed the download path to the proper location, but if I want to download files bigger than ~500mb I get an error because it does not fit on the temporary location (being the C:\ drive, which I want to change to the D:\ drive).

It appears that previously I needed to go to about:config and add a browser.cache.disk.parent_directory string, but I don't seem to be able to choose a new string there. I'm on version 78.0.2.
