How to return the memCache setting back to default, for users upgrading to Mozilla 1.4.1 or Mozilla 1.5


If you are upgrading to Mozilla 1.4.1 or Mozilla 1.5, and using the same Profile, the following information will guide you in returning the memCache setting back to the default.

Backup your prefs.js, user.js, or all.js file, before editing.
(Depending on which method you used to apply the workaround.)

If you applied the workaround in about:config
Highlight the setting in about:config:
browser.cache.memory.capacity
Right click
Select: Reset
This will take the setting back to default

If you applied the workaround to the all.js file, you should disable the workaround regardless of whether or not you created a new profile, as this is a global setting and is retained for both new, and existing Profiles:
// -1 = determine dynamically, 0 = none, n = memory capacity in kilobytes
You will need to return the setting to -1 which will allow Netscape or Mozilla to set memCache dynamically, based on RAM.

Remove this script from:
C:\Program Files\mozilla.org\Mozilla\defaults\pref
pref("browser.cache.memory.capacity", 1024);
(Or whichever setting you selected: 1024, 2048, or 4096)

If you added the workaround to a user.js file , then remove this script from the user.js, and the prefs.js file:
user_pref("browser.cache.disk.capacity", 1024);
(Or whichever setting you selected: 1024, 2048, or 4096)

Close Mozilla, then restart. The prefs.js, user.js, or all.js file will be updated.
