Notes

Why not just use 'cp', or 'mv' commands in /etc/rc.local and /etc/rc.local.shutdown? Adamlau 18:04, 22 September 2010 (EDT)

Isn't 2.1 a bit out of date now that we have the browser.cache.memory.enable setting? Jamie Kitson (talk) 19:00, 14 August 2012 (UTC)

Security

How about pointing out a few drawbacks like "putting browser profile into /tmp poses a security risk --- other users can now see it?" All3fox (talk) 07:17, 30 August 2013 (UTC)

$USER

I think this line

volatile=/dev/shm/firefox-$USER

in the script should be changed to

volatile=/dev/shm/firefox-${whoami}

, or the CRON job will fail, because $USER is not set. But as I'm using another distro I don't know wheter it is working in ARCH, so I won't change that line now. Hope I get some feedback here. Kovacssanya (talk) 10:33, 22 November 2013 (UTC)

A more simple way of using firefox-sync is to make a script like this:

#!/bin/bash
/bin/firefox-sync
firefox
/bin/firefox-sync

i.e merging profiles before launching firefox and after closing it. It has its downsides but it is easier. Kisame217 (talk) 12:52, 19 September 2014 (UTC)

Merge

I will give my -1 for merge with Firefox. Both page are quite long. Keep them seperate will make maintaince easier. --Fengchao (talk) 07:42, 14 September 2014 (UTC)

Um yeah, -1 also from me because it wouldn't make sense to merge this but leave Firefox tweaks on its own, and the 3 put together would make too much of a long article.
The title should be changed to Firefox ramdisk, or maybe something different like Firefox on RAM?

+1 for Firefox on RAM. --Fengchao (talk) 07:58, 1 January 2016 (UTC)
Thanks, page moved, closed. — Kynikos (talk) 01:18, 2 January 2016 (UTC)

Using mode=1777, bad idea?

I'm not sure if there is any particular reason why the /etc/fstab example uses mode=1777. Why would I want my personal browser cache to be world-readable? Wouldn't it be better to use something like:

user, uid=1000, gid=1000

This section is now removed because it is out of date. The directory listed is not used anymore. See Firefox Ramdisk#Relocate cache only to RAM for cache in memory.
