lost all my bookmarks. utter bs..
I only needed Places Maintenance once, but that one time was a lifesaver. Those who miss this add-on will be happy to know that its functionality has now been incorporated into Firefox itself as of FF 57. To use it, go to about:support, scroll down to "Places Database" (or search for it) and click on "Verify Integrity."
Doesn't work. Stuck at "Cleaning up..."
Windows 10, Firefox 48.0.2
I ran it because my Bookmarks toolbar exists but is empty. If I upgrade, the bookmarks return but I cannot upgrade because I need to use Silverlight. ESR version doesn't work with my app.
Sometimes Firefox just starts acting strange, and using this extension can get it back to acting like it should.
Please consider redesigning it for Firefox 57.
This is an excellent add-on. Please update it for FF57+! It's needed.
How do you make this work? When I access the plugin and click "options" (the only real choice) it opens a box saying "fetching stats" and that is as far as it goes. Just hangs there. Is there something else I should be doing?
Works great, and verbosely.
Tried it on FF 52 ESR, so keep an eye about functionality on more recent browser versions.
Program doesn't even run. Just said "fetching stats" for 4 days, no matter what I tried or how many times, it never said anything other than "fetching stats". I didn't have THAT much stuff to recover...
I lost my bookmarks, all of them & have been trying to find a way to get them back. Someone suggested giving this add on a try. I installed it & tried to use it, but it gets stuck right at the beginning at "Fetching stats". I left it alone for over 10 hours overnight & it still said "Fetching stats" in the morning, 10 hours later. Not sure why it won't work. Wish it would.
after wiping my entire history that had bloated for over a decade...
I then used this tool to clean up the
reducing it from 51MB to 10MB lol ;)
only issues I see is updates to this cool ext..
1) new with FF v55 they are moving the
fav-icons into there on database "favicons.sqlite" so updated compatibility for that too.. ;)
2) Web-Extensions compatibility?
3) there is no contact info or support forums.. so
I am left with posting my thoughts here as a review. x(
Places Maintenance - отличное расширение, очищающее и сжимающее ваш профиль.
It saved my broken places.sqlite with a ton of important info. Very handy tool!
Forever stuck at "Fetching stats..."
Firefoxのデータベースをメンテナンスして高速化できるアドオンです。ツール・アドオン・拡張機能・Places Maintenance 設定画面で「次へ」をクリックしていくことで実行できます。
Does great when database was fine to begin with, shockingly! Has some infinite loop in cleanup when database is wonky. This led to 100% CPU usage and even after hitting Cancel kept running, and firefox had to be killed. IOW not only does it not work when you have a poor database, but also makes you lose your session. So in my limited experience, absolutely useless.
Works fine for me.
Still it would be nice if You add some additional options regarding automation options (clean every X days) and cleaning rare items (visited less than X times)
If this thing says the truth, it should have reduced the size of my places.sqlite database by almost a third. First impression is really excellent.
It gets as far as "Cleaning up ..." and then stops. I had it running all night, and still had the same message when I got in this morning. As far as I can tell it does nothing.
I'm trying to run the maintenance but it always just gets stuck on "Checking integrity" and nothing seems to happen, no matter how long I wait.
My issue is, that sometimes when I close the browser after a long session, places.sqlite gets corrupted. For now, I've been able to fix it by simply deleting the new places file and renaming the old places.sqlite.corrupt back to places.sqlite.
However I'm not sure how long I can keep doing this before it just becomes corrupted for good. What should I do? I was really hoping this addon would solve my issues.
Looks like your corruption is worse. Please check https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Tech/Places/places.sqlite_Database_Troubleshooting#How_to_(try_to)_recover_from_a_corrupt_places.sqlite
Bookmarks database corrupted
Did the job, aced it actually.
Bookmarks are back.
Highly recommended on db corruption issues
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.
If there are errors, it seems to find and successfully correct them. THANKS!
