 Using an addon (assuming the addon is safe), I filter cache-control &
 pragma headers.

 I also go to about:config and set the following

 browser.cache.disk.enable = false
 browser.cache.memory.capacity = 150000

 For me personally it is much better browsing experience. I would like to
 know how it is in terms of anonymity, security and privacy. Are there any
 possible exploits problems that arise of these settings?

 P.S. cypherphunks acc not working, creating a new account causes recaptcha
 which needs javascript. please at least remove recaptcha and add another
 method or captcha.
