Reddit/FF thread: .... From FF sessionstore Writes (says Ave is 35 GB Daily) and his Apps Writes a guy freaked that at 1.37 years of use he's used over half of his Samsung 850 SSD 75 TB Warranty.
I know SSD Warranty Vs Life are quite different.

SO, he changed his [ browser.sessionstore.interval ] from 15 seconds to 25 minutes saying he BkMks many sites and Session Saves are not critical / Warranty IS.

I Never use Restore Recent Tabs (I see just 10) & I look thru History for past opened Tabs. To Test, I chg'd mine to 2.5 min and History entries are still there after Open /quick Tab Close.
I can't see HOW this 25 min edit really matters -- and IF it saves a lot of FF Writes to an SSD -- WHAT is he losing ?

..... AND a New FF Entry ---browser.sessionstore.interval.idle --- is Default 1 Hour. What does THAT mean?

reddit is responsible for reddit tweaks.
about ssd - its a myth that ssd would die earlier because of firefox, tales...
if session files blow up there are other issues to solve than ssd.

browser.sessionstore.interval;60000 (in ms, means 60 seconds, modified)
browser.sessionstore.interval.idle;3600000 (in ms, means one hour, default value)

for this browser my latest session backup is from 12:54 - here now 16:47.

and now start calculate how many times it was written here in that period: none

the tale from eating ssd starts 2016, just rubbish.

Thanks, B..... TechReport.com test of 6 SSD Drives showed 1st Error at 300 TB and 1st failure at 700 TB Vs His concern over a 75 TB Warranty. That reality I understood.
I just didn't understand IF the difference mattered in having a 15 second sessionstore.interval and a 25 minute one. It didn't seem to affect how I operate but I come to you guys for the clarity.
Do feel better about SSD and FF Writes not being That great an impact on them. Thanks again!
