I use a RAMDisk for the disk cache. Prior to upgrading to Firefox 11, I used to be able to set

browser.cache.disk.parent_directory=R:\

to set this. Now the cache is no longer located on R:\ although this setting is still there. Where has it gone and why?

Does it help if you use a specific directory like R:\temp on that drive instead of setting the root directory as the location of the cache?

Be sure to create the specified directory.

Are you setting the cache location via the about:config page?

No, specifying an existing subdirectory doesn't help.

Yes I'm setting the cache location via the about:config page.
