How to liberate the max size of the ".sqlite" file in "storage/default" in "~/.mozilla/firefox"?

Firefox seems to constrain the maximum size of the ".sqlite" file in "storage/default" in "~/.mozilla/firefox" to 10% of the free space of the partition containing the home directory of the user. I need to let the ".sqlite" file grow very large, even larger than the free space of the partition containing my home directory. Therefore, I need the following two points.

1. I would like to disable this 10% constraint. 2. I would like to place this ".sqlite" on an external USB drive (or USB stick) without moving the entire "~/.mozilla/firefox" directory to the external USB drive.

The path of this ".sqlite" contains an enigmatic alphanumeric string and hexadecimal digits, which differ from user to user and from machine to machine, and which may be inappropriate to be exposed to the public. So, I refrain from showing the exact path. Instead, I will describe the path.

The directory "~/.mozilla/firefox" contains a subdirectory whose name ends with ".default-release", which in turn has a subdirectory "storage/default", which still in turn has a subdirectory whose name starts with "moz-extension+++" followed by hexadecimal digits and hyphens (but not followed by "^userContextId"), which still in turn has a subdirectory "idb", which finally contains the file whose name ends with ".sqlite".

The following is a diagram to describe the path. Directories are separated by / as common on Unix-like systems unlike Windows. A sequence of three asterisks (***) indicates an omission of enigmatic string.

   ~/.mozilla/firefox/
     ***.default-release/
       storage/default/
         moz-extension+++***/  not followed by ^userContextId
           idb/
             ***.sqlite


Firefox seems to constrain the maximum size of this ".sqlite" file to 10% of the free space of the partition containing the home directory of the user.

I replaced the "idb" directory with a symlink named "idb" which points at a directory (which is also named "idb") on an external USB drive. That is, I deleted the "idb" directory from the partition containing the "~/.mozilla/firefox" directory, and created a symlink named "idb" in the place of the old "idb" directory.

Then, I successfully let Firefox write data into the new ".sqlite" file on the external USB drive. However, Firefox continues to constrain the maximum size of this ".sqlite" file to 10% of the free space of the partition containing the home directory of the user. Even after the diversion by symlink, the basis of the constraint is still the partition containing the home directory of the user (instead of the external USB drive), of which 10% is the max size of the new ".sqlite" file residing on the external USB drive.

I like neither the 10% constraint itself nor the basis of constraint being the partition containing the home directory of the user.

How can the 10% constraint be disabled? I would like the only limitation for the size of the ".sqlite" file to be the free space of the external USB drive.


By the way, for those who want to know why I care about this ".sqlite" file, I will explain as follows. There is a certain download manager which is an addon or extension of Firefox. In its multithread mode, this download manager divides the desired file into several parts, and downloads all the parts simultaneously. In certain circumstances, the multithread mode is several times faster than the single-thread mode. This download manager downloads all the parts of a file into the ".sqlite" file first, and then assembles them into a final big file in the Downloads folder or whichever directory that the user specifies.

In my use case, 10% of the free space of the partition containing my home directory is too small to receive big files. I wish this download manager could download the multi-parts into an external USB drive in a manner that Firefox does not impose any constraint. However, this download manager cannot let the user specify where the multi-parts should be downloaded to. It downloads the multi-parts into only the ".sqlite" file and nowhere else; and Firefox imposes the 10% constraint on the ".sqlite" file. The user can specify the destination of only the final file assembled from the multi-parts.

Anyway, I need to disable the 10% constraint. But how?

Thank you in advance.

On Monday last, whilst printing email information my firefox connection disappeared. I later recovered the site, however now have no connection with my default printer Cannon 6300 seies and my printer. Also unable to remove the item I wished to print when the site was down in print list, have removed other items in print list with no problem. Now cannot not only remove item from print list, also cannot print using Firefox Browser on default printer. Have spent some time trying to solve situation. Any assistance which can be supplied would be gratefully received. Also now problems with printing from Windows office in Word, and Excel?

Could be block issue due to being unable to clear print list?

Thank you in anticipation of your assistance and support regarding these issues.

Kind regards Anne

Suddenly lost my Lockwise Passwords

Hello Everyone,

I have a Firefox account and I used to have all my passwords saved in Lockwise app (on my Huawei mobile) and in Lockwise section on my laptop (Linux) and all these passwords were synced across all my devices. I changed my mobile to IPhone and I didn't install Lockwise but I was still able to get to my logins via my laptop. And I was very cautious that I kept syncing every now and then.

The problem is that I formatted my laptop recently to windows 11, when I installed Firefox on my laptop again I was expecting to be able to retrieve all my passwords (around 200 entries) since everything was synced, but to my surprise everything was lost except for 16 entries.

Is there any way to backup my old list of passwords?

Please note that I still have my old phone (Huawei) with the old passwords list and the auto sync turned off. Is there any way to backup these passwords from Huawei to Iphone and to my Laptop?

I just synced two new devices (Android phone and tablet) using the scanned QR code because I got the error message that the password I was trying to use was incorrect. I don't understand what has happened, as I am "signed in" on desktop, laptop and those two devices with that password, as far as I know.

I was trying to set up the Recovery Key, but that also tells me that the current password is incorrect. I do not want to lose all of my saved passwords, history, etc., which is what it sounds like will happen if I try to reset my password.

Help!

I tried optimising firefox's settings for the most possible privacy. When i visit firstpartysimulator.org and complete the test, the result claims i do have a decent protection against tracking while my "software" is not checking for "do not track policies". By software im not sure if this is ment to be the operatingsystem or the browser, firefox. The result also shows i do have a nearly unique fingerprint. If i remove one of my current extensions -> canvas blocker, i do have a unique fingerprint. This is not good as i see it.

How can i make firefox (or windows if so) check for do not track policies? I noticed the duckduckgo addon claims to always check for do not track policies but im not sure if i really need this extension. Also do not track only works if the host website supports it as far as i know. To get this to an end, the question is 1, how to make us of do not track policies, 2 how can i make my fingerprint less unique? I only changed a couple settings in about:config and use a total of 3 browser extensions, this shouldnt be to much unique, or?

By inverting the caps/num lock I do mean that if they are active, then firefox get the input as if they weren't and viceversa

but if I do try to write into the numpad then the issue is not there, then if I do try to write again into firefox, the issues are not anymore present, the same happens when I do try to record the issue with obs, once that I do press record, then the issues will not be any more present

I did try a clean install, and the issues are still there, with and without addons, the issue seems to appear randomly, and always at the same time, I mean if the caps become reversed, then it will also prohibit me to gui delete a tab, to switch from one tab to another (but both do become highlighted by the gui), and opening each new tab into a new window

when I click on a PDF on a website, Firefox does what is specified under Settings/Applications for "Portable Document Format (PDF) (application/pdf)". I prefer to open the PDF in the Adobe Acrobat Reader, but apparently, the browser prefers to save PDF files. When I save my preferences "open with Adobe Acrobat Reader", it does that, but the next day, it tries to save the PDF again. This has been so for a long time. An overlooked bug or a feature?

Using Firefox 94.0

The objective is to change the tags of large numbers of bookmarks. This is to organize existing bookmarks under new categories that help in finding them more easily.

Until some time ago, I used the Library (Ctrl + Shift + O) to first select a batch of bookmarks (whether or not filtered after an existing tag or another criterion); and typed the new tag in the field Tags: at the bottom of the Library dialogue window. If I had to change the tag, I simply wrote the new one; the old one was replaced. If I had to add a tag, I could repeat the old tag and add the new one.

Now, instead, my new tag is appended to each and every bookmark in the batch. This makes it impossible to delete the old tags, unless you do it one at a time. Both doing and undoing become unwieldy when you have tens or hundreds of bookmarks. Also, it defeats the purpose of streamlining, because the number of tags grows.

So, there is a difference in behavior between editing the tag of a single bookmark and the tag of a batch of bookmark. Is this intended? If so, how to work around that? If not, I presume this is bug.

On the website at www.trelly.com as well as others, when I want to share a link I'm taken to my Chrome browser. I have Firefox selected as my default browser and most of the time links are opened in Firefox. Is there anything that can be done to prevent some links going to Chrome?

I've browsed through a dozen of posts now and so far got my homepage to show me my local file. The problem is that I want this local file to also show when I open a new tab (Ctrl+T).

I've configured an autoconfig based on another post I read, currently have this:

In my autoconfig.cfg: // first line is a comment var {classes:Cc,interfaces:Ci,utils:Cu} = Components; var newTabURL = "path_to_my_file.html"; aboutNewTabService = Cc["@mozilla.org/browser/aboutnewtab-service;1"].getService(Ci.nsIAboutNewTabService); aboutNewTabService.newTabURL = newTabURL;

In my autoconfig.js: // pref("general.config.filename", "autoconfig.cfg"); pref("general.config.obscure_value", 0); //pref("general.config.sandbox_enabled", false);


I have the last line commented because it worked for the poster, but it gives me an error that firefox couldn't load my autoconfig and that I should contact my sysadmin, lol. Other than that error message, it worked the same as it does now after I closed the popup.

If possible I don't want to use any extensions for this.

Whenever I am viewing a PDF and wish to download it or save a file from firefox, the save dialogue of the finder and where to save it does not appear. Only the initial firefox option of "Open file" or Save As dialogue appears. Once pressing Save As, nothing else happens. Furthermore when simply pressing Cmd + S to save the PDF no dialouge appears. When typing this message and attempting to add an image of a screenshot, once again the finder dialogue to select a file does not appear.

Is this a mac issue or firefox problem? I am running Mac OS 12.0.1 Monterey.

Hello,

When going to logon to Indiegogo.com I first reopen it in a Facebook container but once I do that the container goes away.

The link I visit: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/wemax-go-pro-thinnest-alpd-smart-laser-projector?utm_source=launchemail+gator&utm_medium=launchemail+gator&utm_campaign=launchemail+gator#/

Whether I copy and paste the link in a new FB container or click the tab to reopen in FB container it goes away immediately.

Thanks, Brian Middleton
