browser.sessionstore.interval limits for Firefox 12

Posted

I was trying to edit browser.sessionstore.interval to for watching youtube videos but it lags, so my question is what is the limits. Also in case you are wondering you can check out the Troubleshooting information, so let me know?

Chosen solution

browser.sessionstore.interval as the article said: allowing the user to continue browsing from where they left off if browser restarts. This preference controls how often information about the current session is saved to the profile. Default, in ff 12, is 15000 or 15 seconds, so 365 days 31536000000 secs i think it is too long. I don't known the limit you want but try 120000 (2 minutes) or 300000(5 minutes).

thank you

More Information

My question regarding this what is the limits of "browser.sessionstore.interval" because when I try to set the number to last for 365 days (31536000000). I get the error, "The text you entered is not a number." So let me know since I get lag on youtube.com to watch videos?
