Why is Firefox putting a cache folder on my memory stick

Every time I launch Firefox (windows 7) it puts a "Cache" folder on my USB memory stick, if the stick in installed.

Inside the folder is a "Firefox" folder with all sorts of folders under that.

If I close Firefox, I can delete the Cache folder, but it comes back if I relaunch Firefox

I want Firefox to put the Cache on my hard drive, not my USB drive.

hello gribbled, please try this: enter about:config into the firefox address bar (confirm the info message in case it shows up) & search for the preference named browser.cache.disk.parent_directory - right-click and reset that entry to the default value and restart the browser once.

THANKS! Super quick reply and it instantly solved my problem. I have no idea how the cache got set to the E: drive, but its back to normal now and I hope it will stay that way.

Thanks again!
