    Hi

    Try to put another usb stick in the 2th port of your usb card (if there's only 1, consider buying an usb hub). Once done, edit the firefox.conf (guess you're using firefox and it's the proper conf filename) and change the path of the cache location that it will aim to the 2th usb stick.

    This is experimental : not sure if it will work, but if you can't get google results, it's probably because of the cache that is too small so it will probably be a better idea to borrow the hub to someone before buying one and to learn that it's not working. (Even if a usb hub isn't really expansive : +/- $20).

    Hi

    I don't really know where it is located but you can find it using

    Code:
    find / -name '*firefox*' | more
    Follow / with the other partitions that you have on your system, like

    Code:
    find / /var /usr -name '*firefox*' | more
