Talk:Browser.cache.memory.capacity

From MozillaZine Knowledge Base

I switched around browser.cache.memory.capacity again after your edit. Just trying to keep things consistent between the articles. For example, the default value is always listed in parenthesis, and recommendations is solely for recommendations, not about other things. The info you added was good, though. The only thing I removed was the bit about how to add it, since it doesn't exist. If you want, you can go to all the preferences that say "does not exist by default" and include a link to somewhere than explains how to add. I just don't want an explanation on how to add a preference --Np 22:48, 4 January 2006 (UTC)

Oh, and if you know how to make table cells right aligned, that'd be sweet if you could do that. I'm going to revise the values later, since they are approximations.--Np 22:51, 4 January 2006 (UTC)

Np, I copied the above message you posted to my User Talk page since I think it belongs here. I'm not going to make any more edits to the page, then, since you must be following a "template" (or other guide?) for preference pages that I'm not aware of. No problem.... and, I don't know how to right-justify the table cells but maybe someone else coming across this page might Alice Wyman 00:31, 5 January 2006 (UTC)
I see Unarmed has fixed the table  :-) Alice Wyman 15:46, 5 January 2006 (UTC)

What exactly does browser.cache.memory.capacity effect in Thunderbird? The amount of memory used when displaying HTML message bodies? Its a little confusing because a 51.2MB disk cache is supposedly also enabled yet I can't find any sign that it exists. The article claims the browser.cache.memory.capacity preference doesn't exist by default but it appears to occur by default with Thunderbird v1.5. I notice at least seven different caches in tools -> options -> advanced -> general -> config editor. How can I find out my information about them, especially IMAP caching?

It affects the same thing that it does in Firefox and others; the amount of memory for caching decoded images and XUL. It's completely different than what the disk cache does. I've amended the article to say that it does exist in Thunderbird. For the other preferences, I'd say look at about:config Entries or Category:Preferences--Np 22:41, 20 January 2006 (UTC)
