I am using netscape 7.0 beta. By default cache folder is created in /var/tmp/ as /var/tmp/vd129052.cache for me. I want to change the cache folder to my home directory as /home/vd129052/.mozilla/. Now I select proper folder in netscape preferences as I want and it is displayed properly/var/tmp/vd129052.cache in the preferences box. But when I exit and restart netscape I find the cache folder again as /var/tmp/vd129052.cache. This is very strange behaviour and critical bug. I am forced to use /var/tmp which I don't want for my cache folder. Other reason is that suppose if I am a NIS user and I don't have my own hard disk then what will happen? And suppose even if I have a hard disk but I want to use cache folder in my home directory coz I don't have much space in my /var/tmp. and another reason might be that even if I am having space I should not be forced to. and one another reason is that I can't access same cache if I restart my netscape on some other machine and I am a NIS user who can work from any machine. It is pathetic to have such bug and realeasing the product.
-> Cache This is no blocker.. This bug is invalid because we don't accept Netscape bugs. But I think Mozilla will be also affected. Leaving open until we know more...

verified invalid this is also bug# 46490. Regardless, you should be able to change the path in prefs.js somewhere.
