Nothing is cached. Web page load times are far slower than when its cached(in windows). No thumbs are generated for the new tab page either.

Here're some key-values from about:config

browser.cache.disk.capacity;1048576
browser.cache.disk.enable;true
browser.cache.disk.max_entry_size;51200
browser.cache.disk.smart_size.enabled;true
browser.cache.disk.smart_size.first_run;false
network.http.use-cache;true
media.cache_size;512000

..and am not using private browsing.

Here're the file folder perms listed if you need: http://pastebin.ca/2171198

Are you using Clear Recent History to clear the cache if you close Firefox?

  • Edit > Preferences > Privacy : History: [X] Clear history when Firefox closes > Settings

If you do then the disk cache is disabled because you aren't keeping the cache over a session.

You can check the browser.cache.disk.enable pref on the about:config page to see if the disk cache is enabled.
