Multisessions save the cache of navigators, a big thing.
Next boot, all caches stores in the cd is loaded to ram, filling it unnecessarily.

Opera and Firefox , not Seamonkey, enable to empty the cache's before shut-off the computer, but this is annoying.
A inspection of the cd that includes several sessions, show the growing and the sizes of the caches.

If you are on a fast conection then run with zero cache..it makes very little difference...plus you don't want to save it anyway.

Otherwise the other solution would be to add a line in the shutdown script to empty the directory ... I know little bash scripting but I'm sure someone can help you out with this.

For general information in mozilla apps a cache file is also written to speed up program lanching...this is quite large (1mb+) and will be saved every time ...it can be disabled by adding as a boolean pref in about:config set to 'true'

nglayout.debug.disable_xul_fastload

I noticed virtually no difference in launch speed without it but saves quite a bit of space for multisession saves.

If you have a lot of bookmarks then make 'bookmarkbackups' a read only dummy file in the profile and this will prevent writing af the four extra bookmark backups.

If you're using an email client, the disk will also fill up with deleted emails - which it turns out are not really deleted but kept in a hidden file. I've read that deleting emails with shift-delete will bypass that and truly delete the email, but this may only apply to Windows. I haven't tried it. (I use Yahoo mail.)

'empty trash' and 'compact folders' on thunderbird (and seamonkey?)...there are automatic settings for this though I prefer the manual approach...this will rewrited the mail storage leaving out all removed messages...as mentioned nothing is actually removed when deleted.
