LXer: Speed up Firefox by mounting the profile in tmpfs (RAM) [Linux only]

Published at LXer:

tmpfs is a virtual, RAM-backed filesystem. Itís lightning-fast, but since itís RAM-backed, any file written to tmpfs uses precious memory while itís there, and the entire contents of the virtual partition are lost on shutdown or crash. The good news is that these detriments can be minimized, making tmpfs a viable choice for your profile directory. This document gives some tips on how to mount your Firefox profile in a tmpfs partition while minimizing the downsides of tmpfs.
