This is all from my very bad memory please take it with a hand full of salt. 
 I think you could move your swap to your flash drive but the write times will be longer but with faster read time (I think).
 This whole thing is not covered by wine.
 This is not be the right place to ask for help for doing that.

You know the is a linux version of firefox? :P
