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.

I cannot turn on the audio input and the audio output in Discord web application when running Firefox for desktop PC. The advice from Mozilla Support knowledge base regarding how to enable microphone did not help, since there is always no access request from discord.com detected in "Preferences" -> "Privacy & Security" -> "Permissions".

I am using the latest version of Firefox (94.0.1) on Windows 7 SP 1 and Windows 10 20H2. In Discord Support knowledge base the app is claimed to support Firefox version 80+.

I noticed that logins and passwords disappeared after the computer turned off unexpectedly due to low battery and unstable power connection couple times in a few minute interval.

How do I get back logins and passwords?

Hello I love Firefox and I primarily use Firefox on all my devices.

I manage facebook and instagram account using facebook content studio. I have no problem uploading videos to facebook. I upload the videos to Instagram from this link (https://business.facebook.com/creatorstudio/instagram_content_posts). I'm not having a problem uploading a post(image). but I'm having trouble uploading the video. The problem I have is: the video upload continues up to 99.9%, but somehow it does not go to 100%. I cannot share the video unless it is 100%. I try again, close and open the tab and sometimes even restart the browser. Not all the time but too many times I have this problem. I upload the same video to twitter, facebook and instagram. video uploads to twitter and facebook without any problem, but not to instagram. I wait for a long time, but unfortunately it is not 100%. I have been using the Google Chrome browser for video uploads for a while because firefox has not finished uploading, and I have not encountered any problems so far. I only experience this problem when uploading videos to Instagram and through firefox.

I am using Facebook container and Tab Reloader plugins. I also wrote this problem on facebook, but they do not seem to have a problem. please find a solution to this problem. I want to use firefox. not chrome u.

best regards

I just loaded your new Alias email into my Windows computer and now I the email to log into my Gmail will not show or open. How do I turn off my current email from being taken over by your software?

Should I delete the program all together?

Is there a way to tell the software which sites to keep?

This software has not been thoroughly tested out. Take it off and go back to the drawing board.

Thanks,

Firefox has arranged my extensions alphabetically. I would prefer to group them functionally, or at least be able to separate those which have similar colors -- for example, Grammarly and Evernote are both green and I sometimes click on one when I want the other. I would also like to have the one I use most at the far right of the toolbar.

I'm using Firefox on a 2021 Macbook Pro (the one with the notch) and I've noticed that when I'm in full screen mode and I navigate to the Mac menu bar, the Firefox tab menu drops down. This wasn't a problem on my old Mac, since it allowed for the Mac menu to drop down, but since the menu has been moved to the top of the screen on either side of the notch on the new Macbook Pro, it's unncessary and bothersome. Is there a setting I can change to prevent this from happening?

Howdy, fellow Firefox aficionados.

I'm running FF on a Windows 10 Home 64-bit desktop. Some time ago, I suddenly could no longer open Firefox because it couldn't find my Profile. So, I attempted to create a new one, but it would not allow me to do so.

"Changes Not Saved"

   "An unexpected Error has prevented your changes from being saved."

[See uploaded Image]

More than likely, either I, or one of my system maintenance programs wiped some data or folder. I have deleted Firefox and reinstalled it with the latest version, but this dilemma persists.

Thanks for reading my post and if you reply, a big Thanks!

(Firefox 94.0; Fedora 34; Gnome)

When I go to some video websites and click the play button, I see the little circular thing in the image are spinning, indicating that the video is loading. But it never stops and it never plays. Also, the pause button does not have any effect; the loading indicator keeps spinning. Example website: "https://proclassictv.com/" (both with "The Rifleman" and "My Favorite Martian" episodes. I've tried this on a few of the videos available there. Same result. I've tried this with add-ons enabled and with add-ons disabled (current session). I've seen this in a few other websites also. I don't know if the problem is my system, Firefox, or the host website.

I am able to view youtube videos with no problems.

How do I get the videos to play?

Thank-you.
