Can't get browser.cache.disk.parent_directory to work

I've tried to use the browser.cache.disk.parent_directory method to move my disk cache, but this isn't working.

Details:

I did a clean install of Firefox 22 on Vista, and then, following instructions, went into about:config, created the browser.cache.disk.parent_directory key, and gave it the value of a directory I had created.

I then visited many different sites (no, not in private browsing mode), and noticed nothing was being saved there. In fact, the new directory is absolutely empty (no hidden folders either).

Looking at about:cache, I am informed:

Offline cache device Number of entries: 0 Maximum storage size: 512000 KiB Storage in use: 0 KiB Cache Directory: C:\Users\XXX\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\XXX.default\OfflineCache

And yes, browser.cache.disk.enable is set to true.

This is true regardless of whether I am using my admin account with no extensions or my standard user account with several extensions.

Advice?
