Want to move Session Restore path from SSD Boot drive to Data HDD

Posted

I have an SSD for my boot drive, and a standard HDD for Storage. My understanding is that Session restore can fatigue an SSD with large amounts of data frequently written. I've changed the interval to 600000, or 10 minutes, but would really rather move the Session Restore file to a path on my HDD where the write volume is not so destructive. Is there any way to do that?

You can move your entire profile folder, or set up a new profile folder on the HDD, but as far as I know, you cannot move a subset of a profile folder.

Also, this issue probably is overblown. https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/545laq/firefox_is_eating_your_ssd_here_is_how_to_fix_it/
