My Time Machine backups often consist of Firefox's places.sqlite file (which, as I understand it, contains both history and bookmarks) and little else. When I clear my browsing history the file shrinks by about 80%. I think I have the following options:
- Live with it
- Exclude places.sqlite from being backed up and risk losing my bookmarks
- Tell Firefox not to track history
Is there another option under which I track history without burning space to back it up?
BTW, running sqlite vacuum helps some, shrinking places.sqlite by about a factor of two. The command is
sqlite3 places.sqlite "vacuum;".
