Firefox caching to NFS mounted home directories killing disk IO on file server

I'll answer part of my question by saying putting a firefox.js file in
/usr/lib/firefox-12/defaults/pref results in that file being honored by
thin clients, but not if firefox is being run as a local app. Since I am
running local apps, I guess my question is reduced to where/how does
firefox.js have to be to work with local apps under Ubuntu Lucid? Any
current howto's or pointers would be appreciated!
