May I change otter-browser's cache files location to my ramdisk?
Hi,

I use imdisk to make a ramdisk.
How do I change otter-browser's cache files location to my ramdisk?

I can change these configure arguments in Firefox (about:config)

"browser.cache.disk.parent_directory
browser.cache.disk.enable=false
browser.cache.memory.enable=true
browser.cache.memory.capacity=-1"

May I do it in Otter-browser?

Thanks
Jack

You've obviously never ran Otter from the command line. Well then, you're missing a lot ;)

Btw, you can put an arguments.txt into the folder containing Otter Browser's executable which contains the command line arguments you want to always use.
