Web browsers and SSD's


#1

I’m sorry if this has been discussed already, but I’ve just found this article both interesting and usefull

Fix for firefox

about:config
browser.sessionstore.interval

change 15000 miliseconds to 1500000 milliseconds, i.e. 25min :wink:

Thanks pin. I leave my laptop on for long periods and wondered if my SSD would suffer. I have no drive light on my laptop. That is quite a lot of writing in a short space of time. Setting changed.

You are welcome :yum: I’ve also changed this setting on all my machines.

I’m not sure if it’s a solution for it. But I think it’s good to load ff cache into ram (ff is much faster then):

browser.cache.disk.enable            false
browser.cache.disk_cache_ssl         false

Create a new integrer:

browser.cache.memory.capacity         4096

You can change this value according to your ram volume (don’t use entire ram :grinning:)
If you set it to -1 ff will use now available ram (ff is a little bit slower than in the exapmle above)

Hiya.

Thank you for the tip. Just out of curiosity, does using psd (https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Profile-sync-daemon) achieve the same results? It’s packaged in void’s repository.

Oh! I’m no expert!
I would guess so!? Anyone?


#7

I don’t create this new integer.
I just use the default setting, which gives me about 23MB of cache in RAM:

@cr6 I hope it is very fast now :rofl:
