ERROR DOMException: The quota has been exceeded
Hello, we develop an angular application. One of our users couldn't login any more. He uses Firefox 84.0.2 (64-Bit) under Mac. He get's the error `ERROR DOMException: The quota has been exceeded` in Console. Reloading Page even with COMMAND+R didn't work. We deleted the cashed files under settings, as displayed in https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/gallery/images/2018-04-29-04-08-27-fabea4.png (with both checkboxes). It only worked when we deleted the file webappstorage.sqlite in profile folder. Is that a bug?
Thanks in advance.

Hi, try to increase dom.storage.default_quota in about:config to a value high enough not to trigger this bug (the default value is 5 MiB).
thanks for Your answer. As far as I understand, with this change we run into 2 problems: 1. we have to advise all our customers to change this value in their browser, and I don't think, all of them are technical experienced enough to change it themselves. 2. It seems, that this storage is running full. So, they will run sooner or later in the same problem again. For me, the best solution would be, that deleting the cache would really delete the cache. (After I deleted it manually, our application run perfectly again).
OK; on our side in the next version (85 or 86) we're going to make this storage much bigger by default and make it separated per origin.
