    On defining Site Data: This article links to https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/Web_Storage_API for the "storage API" link. However, Storage API is defined here: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/Storage_API ... which includes the following (the dev page links to more info): Site storage—the data stored for a Web site which is managed by the Storage Standard—includes:

    IndexedDB databases
    Cache API data
    Service Worker registrations
    Web Storage API data managed using window.localStorage
    History state information saved using History.pushState()
    Application caches
    Notification data
    Other kinds of site-accessible, site-specific data that may be maintained

    <snip> [2] Firefox 55 introduced StorageManager.persist() and StorageManager.persisted() methods. Users can also manage persistent-storage data in Preferences "Privacy and Security" -> "Site data". These are enabled by default in nightly builds but disabled by default in all other builds. You can enable these features by setting the preference dom.storageManager.enabled and browser.storageManager.enabled to true.

    [3] The Storage API is implemented and enabled by default in Firefox 57.
