Absolutely Essential Extension Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I previously awarded this extension 4 stars. Upon reading my review, the developer promptly and kindly responded with a clarification about an issue. You can't ask for more than that. Accordingly, I've changed my review to 5 stars!

Thank you for this excellent extension. It is absolutely essential to work around serious bugs in Firefox.

The keywords system in Firefox itself is quite buggy. Running this extension will clean up the mess made by Firefox.

I would not be able to recommend Firefox if it was not for the existence of this extension and its generous author.

Seems to work well. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

If there are errors, it seems to find and successfully correct them. THANKS!

Semplice, lineare e funzionante Rated 5 out of 5 stars

places.sqlite 80MB+
webappsstore.sqlite 101MB+

Ha analizzato correttamente il contenuto del database e portato a termine la pulizia necessaria. Dopo aver rimosso manualmente io dati dalla cronologia ho lasciato lavorare l'addon. Ora sto lavorando con entrambi i file più piccoli di 10MB.

great.

Not run since last update. Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Ran with FF47 after resting PM for long time. Seems to run as I recall. Don't know what's happens out-of-view in places.sqlite.
places.sqlite10,240kb before and after
-shm 32 before and after
-wal 609 before, 33 after
don't know if shm and wal matter
Does Places Maintenance support FF47x64...?

Doesn't work on some profiles Rated 1 out of 5 stars

It just gets stuck on "Fetching stats..." (just left it for 10 hours). My places.sqlite is 10 MB, and has -shm and -wal files but no .corrupt files next to it. And there doesn't seem to be anywhere else to report bugs. It *does* work on a new-ish test profile, though.

@MAK, I think this addon is more to use when your Places database is broken or corrupted. Not as a cleaning or vacuuming tool.

A little help in understanding please Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I know I can't be the only person who is not quite sure what exactly these "places" category of addons do.

What's the difference between cleaning the databases and vacuuming the databases?

Does this addon do the navigation bar history too or no?

Thanks.

下のレビューに壊れたとかワケワカメな奴がいますが阿呆でしょ

dangerous Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Firefox を破壊しました。このアドオンを実行後、全部のファビコン、履歴、が強制的に消滅させられていました。Firefox を修理するどころか破壊するとは、ひどすぎます。

This add-on called [Places Maintenance] broke my Firefox. It deleted [my all favicons and histories]. It is very dangerous.

LOVE This Plugin Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Firefox has been running my CPU as high as 129% (that was the highest I witnessed it, anyway) and the bookmarks and history weren't working properly.

I looked in OS X's Activity Monitor to see what Firefox was up to and noticed it was accessing the places database, over and over and over. I did a bit of research and found this extension…

I ran “All” the cleanup/maintenance processes on Firefox, and my CPU was back to normal and my fan stopped running about two seconds after it was completed!

I'll definitely hang onto this in case my Places db needs another clean-up—it was incredible, don't run Firefox without it!

My bookmark database was corrupt, it make sync failed every time. I checked it and found some wrong foreign key. I executed this add-on tasks, except Rebuild Indices, and my bookmark database apparently fixed. At least sync work again and I saw no problems in my bookmarks so far.

fixed history Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I kept on losing most of my history, it just didn't get recorded by Firefox. Same story update after update. After running this, it never happened again. Bookmarks untouched. The bookmark window simplified back again as I liked it.

Location bar was displaying browsing history that had been deleted.
Mozilla insanely insisting that deleting history would solve the problem, which of course it didn't.
Running "maintenance" solved this problem without messing with bookmarks or anything else.
Thank you very very much.

This addon fixed my "Sync encounterd an error" problem. Unfortunately, possibly due to my own ignorance of how this add-on works, my bookmarks seem to have been scrambled. Folders are all in same place but sub folders and individual bookmarks seem to have been completely randomized, mostly posting this as a warning to check out what each function does before running it. Still helped a LOT more than it (maybe) hurt.

Sync was encountering an error. Clicky-clicky with this tool and *poof* everything worked fine. Not even a restart. Awesome!

Tool could be a million times better if it implemented 3 options:

1) Entry in Tool menu
2) Auto-backup
3) Scheduled maintenance.
