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)

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)


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)
