bookmarks in places.sqlite

Posted

Lots of sensitive stuff in places.sqlite file.

%AppData%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\*|places.sqlite

It stores favorite icons, input history, keywords, and browsing history (a record of visited pages). I like to wipe this file since it holds lots of sensitive data, but deleting this file will also delete the bookmarks. I think bookmarks should be stored in a separate file.
