Hello, recently I found these files: C:\Documents and Settings\[name]\Application Data\Mozilla/Firefox/[number].default/storage/permanent/chrome C:\Documents and Settings\[name]\Application Data\Mozilla/Firefox/[number].default/storage/permanent/chrome/.metadata C:\Documents and Settings\[name]\Application Data\Mozilla/Firefox/[number].default/storage/permanent/chrome/idb C:\Documents and Settings\[name]\Application Data\Mozilla/Firefox/[number].default/storage/permanent/chrome/idb/2918063365piupsah.files C:\Documents and Settings\[name]\Application Data\Mozilla/Firefox/[number].default/storage/permanent/chrome/idb/2918063365piupsah.sqlite I can delete them, but they reappear with every Mozilla restart. also, in the folder ...\storage\permanent\chrome\idb temporarily appearing (for couple of seconds) two files - 2918063365piupsah.sqlite-shm (32 kb) and 2918063365piupsah.sqlite-wal (0 kb)

Are those files (2918063365piupsah.sqlite / 2918063365piupsah.sqlite-shm / 2918063365piupsah.sqlite-wal) SAFE (that's the most important question)? Really weird names and location. And what are those? What makes them appear?

hi, these folder structures are created when websites make use of the storage web apis like indexeddb: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/IndexedDB_API
