Firefox Cleaner


A very simple tip to clean and organize firefox's database.
Just run this script, with firefox closed.

Quote:
#!/bin/bash
cd ~/.mozilla/firefox/*.default;
for i in *.sqlite; do sqlite3 $i vacuum; done;
To run this script it's needed sqlite: http://www.sqlite.org/

In general cleaning terms, there's bleachbit and fslint, both python programs which clean the system of supposedly unneeded files, including those in ~/.mozilla.
