Ok, I thought it was dumb to have the cache in the home directory where it gets backed up, since I really don't want it anyway. Yes, you can set it to cache 0, but that is a pain while you are browsing. Son instead I moved the cache dir to the /tmp/ directory. Here is what you need to do if you want to do this. (Note this was done in firefox 1.5. I am unsure about other versions.)
Type about:config in the URL bar.
Now you can browse all you want, and your cache will not get backed up in yout backup.tar.gz file.
