How do I expand file size storage limit in cache? Current file limit seems to be about 65 mb.

I'm interest in storing .flv files permanently but if the file is larger than about 65mb, the Firefox cache won't store anymore than that. How can I adjust Firefox cache so that it stores a larger file?

You can't do that in Firefox 3.6.
It should be possible to do that in the next 4.0 version of Firefox, but current versions store maximum of about 64 MB for one file.

You can increase your cache size from Tools>Options>Advanced>Network panel. This should solve your problem.

Thank you. I did adjust the storage capacity where you said, which I assume relates to the total the folder will store, but individual files in the folder, like a movie clip, still stop at about 65mb. They won't download any larger than that for a single file.
