That's a notification from Firefox that you're accessing a site that
requires DRM. Since you have DRM turned off, you're going to get this
notification.  You could disable ALL notifications. Or don't access
sites that require DRM.

Sure there is. Enter about:config in the address gadget and search for
browser.cache.  Look for disk.capacity and change it.  There are other
cbrowser.cache configs there, too.  Up to you to research them and make
what changes you desire.

Perhaps, about:config has a setting to disable your yellow bar
notification. I haven't checked.
