I'd like to change the experiment.  I believe the half-life value is moved way to much to the future.  We should work here with minutes, not hours.  Anything you visited twice or three times several hours or days in the past may become "more important" than a just visited page you want to navigate right now around and simply not sticking in the cache.

I'd like to restart the test to work with different values: 5 minutes, 15 minutes, 60 minutes and 360 minutes (=6 hours) working like a reference to the current experiment collected data.  This also needs a new probe, expire the current one and rework the browser.cache.frecency_half_life_hours pref to be minutes or float.
