Move cache to Ramdisk

Hi, I created a new profile because of crashes. I have Firefox version 81.0.1 (64-bit). I have Ramdisk but I cannot edit anymore the cache location in browser.cache.disk.parent_directory. I can only toggle true-false but can't add the ramdisk location. Aren't we allowed anymore to use a ramdisk for cache?

Best regards, Ion

Maybe you created browser.cache.disk.parent_directory as the wrong type (Boolean) and not as a String pref. You can click the trash can icon next to the pref and try again.

You can also do this via a policy (policies.json):

Perfect, this solved my problem, many thanks. However I don't know when I changed this, I've been using for a long time the RAMDisk to clear the cache and from time to time I check if the cache is in the correct folder.
