I haven't tryed this,but found on the Internet. Try it:

Quote:
  1. type about:config into the firefox navigation bar and hit enter
  2. find the browser.cache.disk.parent_directory, if it doesn't exist right click anywhere and select NEW, then STRING. Enter browser.cache.disk.parent_directory in the first popup box and then the location in the 2nd popup box e.g. k:\tempintfiles. If the entry already existed simply right click on it and select MODIFY and enter your new directory path.

Get a bigger HDD? That seems like a better solution to me.

It would be the better solution, but in the meantime... download ATF Cleaner Welcome to the Frontpage - www.atribune.org right click to run as Administrator, then select the Firefox button and click "Empty Selected".
