How do you CHANGE the location (away from Drive C) where Firefox stores temporary files (reprise)?

I'm trying to find a way to change where Firefox 93 stores my temporary internet files away from C Drive to a different drive to reduce lag. I found an article on how to do it using the about:config utility, but I can't do what that article describes — right-clicking in the about:config browser does not give me the option to create a new string; there is no "new" option.

How do I change this in Firefox 93?

Do you mean to relocate the disk cache to a different drive ?

You need to create a new String pref named browser.cache.disk.parent_directory. The way to create a new pref in current releases is by typing/pasting the pref name in the search bar. If the pref doesn't exist then Firefox offers to create a new pref.
