Where does Firefox store temp files like browsing history and can I change the location?
In Internet Explorer and Windows I changed the location where temp files are stored to an external hard drive. I would like to change the Firefox temp file location, also, to improve performance and lifespan of my solid state drive. Is this change possible?
