I'm curious about the places.sqlite file that (I believe) stores the
bookmarks. Is there an optimum size beyond which it shouldn't be
allowed to grow? In other words, can it get bloated to the point of

places.sqlite file is 215 megabytes. Is that abnormal or anything to
be concerned about? Thanks.

It also stores history.  If you never clear your browsing history, that
could be why it is so large (unless you have thousands of bookmarks).

Shouldn't there be an option to let the web browser automatically clears
histories after XX times/lines/whatever?

I use the "Expire history by days" extension.  For SeaMonkey, however,
this meant getting the older 1.2.0 version and running it through the
converter at <http://addonconverter.fotokraina.com/>.

Does it that do automatically? I use the one in PrefBar extension, but have to do it manually.
