I've been trying for a few days now to get Firefox to cache pages to /tmp locally for all users. I updated to Firefox 7, then edited the firefox.js in /etc/firefox/pref to include these lines -
pref("general.config.obscure_value", 0); * (supposed to tell FF not to worry about byteshift)
I then took a customized firefox.cfg file and placed it in /usr/lib/firefox-7.0.1.
For what it's worth, we found that many apps and even the Gnome desktop itself didn't work that well with nfs mounted home folders for the students. *We've since moved to having real local folder on each of the LTSP server (we have multiple load balanced) and we use csync (http://www.csync.org/) to*synchronize*those with the central file server on login/logout and every 10 minutes they're logged in. *Performance went up dramatically and the load on the file server is almost nothing.
