(BTW yes I do know that it actually makes sense in one context : some of the fancy ram drives can access > 3 GB RAM in 32 bit windows, in which case it gives you a way to effectively access your excess RAM in an easy way on the old OS; but these geniuses are on Win7-64).
(And of course the right thing to do is to disable page file completely; sadly Windows has not kept up with this modern era of large RAMs and the page file heuristics are not well suited to use as an emergency fallback).
What I have copied from the tweakers is putting my firefox shite on a ram disk :
I can get away with a 128M ram disk and it massive reduces the amount of writes to my SSD. Reducing writes to the SSD is nice for my paranoia (it also speeds up firefox startup and browsing), but the really strong argument for doing this is that I've caught SQLite eating its own ass a few times. I really hate it when I'm just sitting there doing nothing and all of a sudden my fan kicks in and my CPU shoots up, I'm like "WTF is going on god dammit". Well the last few times that's happened, it's been the SQL service fucking around on its files for no god damn good reason. I'm not sure if putting the firefox SQL DB files on the ramdisk actually fixes this, but it makes it cheaper when it does happen anyway.
Also, don't actually use the above linked methods. Instead do this :
Do "about:config" and add "browser.cache.disk.parent_directory" . Obviously also check browser.cache.disk.enable and browser.cache.disk.capacity ; capacity is in KB BTW.
Run "firefox -ProfileManager". Make a new profile and call it "ramprofile" or whatever. Change the dir of that profile to somewhere on the ramdisk. Look at your other profile (probably "default") and see what dir it's in. Make "ramprofile" the default startup profile.
Quit firefox and copy the files from your default profile dir to your ramprofile dir. Run firefox and you are good to go.
Do not set your ramdisk to save & restore itself (as some of fancy ramdisks can do these days). Instead put the profile dir copy operation in your machine startup bat. It's somewhat faster to zip up your default profile dir and have your machine startup bat copy the zip over to the ramdisk and unzip it there.
There's another advantage of this, which is that your whole Firefox profile is now temporary for the session, unless you explicitly copy it back to your hard disk. That's nice. If you pick up tracking cookies or whatever while browsing, or some malicious script changes your home page or whatever, they go away when you reboot.
