Hello,

We have some trouble with Firefox in Windows Roaming Profiles: "The bookmarks and history system will not be functional". The sqlite-shm and sqlite-wal are shown but they are fully inaccessible from CSC (client offline cache). Why does Firefox need to store this temp files in %appdata%? That's really bad design! sqlite-shm and sqlite-wal should be located in %localappdata%.

My solution is to just copy the profile folder, ignoring the inaccessible files. Then I just need to rename it to the original folder name and ff starts just fine. Does anyone know anything more to this problem? Thank you

Bookmarks and history shouldn't be in local or that won't roam with a users's profile.
