Google Play Books is not working well after trying ArchWiki "Firefox on RAM"

Dear Sirs,

I tried to improve Firefox performance by following the steps at https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Firefox_on_RAM

In brief,

   open about:config in the address bar
   set browser.cache.disk.enable to "false" (double click the line)
   verify that browser.cache.memory.enable is set to "true" (default value)
   add the entry (right click->new->integer) browser.cache.memory.capacity and set it to the amount of KB you'd like to spare, or to -1 for automatic cache size selection. (Skipping this step has the same effect as setting the value to -1.) [I skipped]
   profile backup using tar zcvfp ~/firefox_profile_backup.tar.gz ~/.mozilla/firefox/xyz.default
   creation of a script:

firefox-sync

  1. !/bin/sh

static=main link=xyz.default volatile=/dev/shm/firefox-$USER

IFS= set -efu

cd ~/.mozilla/firefox

if [ ! -r $volatile ]; then mkdir -m0700 $volatile fi

if [ "$(readlink $link)" != "$volatile" ]; then mv $link $static ln -s $volatile $link fi

if [ -e $link/.unpacked ]; then rsync -av --delete --exclude .unpacked ./$link/ ./$static/ else rsync -av ./$static/ ./$link/ touch $link/.unpacked fi

First execution of the script: $ killall firefox firefox-bin $ chmod +x ~/bin/firefox-sync $ ~/bin/firefox-sync

Script calling every login and logout: echo '~/bin/firefox-sync' | tee -a ~/.bash_logout ~/.bash_profile >/dev/null

After this Google Play Books fails with the error:

Can't open book

To read books on Google Play, set your web browser to allow cookies for books.googleusercontent.com. Learn more

Firefox

   Open Firefox.
   Click on the Firefox menu > Preferences > Privacy.
   Under “History,” select Use custom settings for history.
   Next to “Accept cookies from site,” click Exceptions.
   Under “Address of website,” type books.googleusercontent.com.
   Click Allow.

Did that many times. Kept failing. Restored the first setting set browser.cache.disk.enable to true again. Kept failing. Loaded again the cookie exeption for playbooks. Worked.

Then I restored the disk.enable setting to false, and since that Google Play Books won't work anymore with either setting, cookie exeption or anything.

I'll apreciate any guideline before the profile deletion; or if it helps you to improve Firefox I'll be glad to help.

Regards,

Nicolás Adamo

I am running firefox 47.0.1 and every time I reboot all my saved logins and passwords disappear. When I check saved logins, there is nothing there. I can reenter and they stay until I log off or reboot. Running Windows 7 64 bit OS, but this behavior just started. Was there something in the latest firefox update responsible for this behavior?
