How secure are these settings with TBB?

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.
