i read the link posted before in this thread, if u use squashfs fro the 
ram disk, it gets compressed a lot, and this would provide loads of 
space, and you'd still have a great performance boost, since 
decompressing and reading from a ram mounted squashfs system is very fast.
firefox writes a lot to ~/.mozilla , i'm not sure how much exactly is 
written there, but if it's too too much, having that in ram is helpful, 
but you would lose ur new bookmarks and history with every shutdown
