Build ID: 2000051720 (and current CVS pull, too) If you delete the Mozilla disk cache directory (which is normally in $HOME/.mozilla/<profile>/Cache), perhaps as the brutal and fast Unix way of cleaning it out, Mozilla will not recreate it. As a side effect, Mozilla stops using a disk cache. Reproduction is 100% for me. Reproduction: - cd to your profile's directory ('cd $HOME/.mozilla/*/.' may work) - delete the disk cache with 'rm -rf Cache'. - start Mozilla, browse around, exit. - verify that the Cache directory has not reappeared and thus you are not using a disk cache.
It's being recreated fine on my may 11th linux build.
I am running Mozilla build 2000060409 on Linux right now. I'm getting this same bug. I'm not sure when the Cache appears at all. I'm moving this to New.

Putting on [nsbeta2-] radar. Will release note for beta2 not to do this :-)

I propose this should be reassessed. Removing the cache directory to clean out the cache is a common enough process. Plus we have the fix in hand. Clearing minus for reeval.
