 +====== Disabling sessionstore in Firefox ======
 +
 +Firefox has a session restore feature, which remembers what pages were opened if Firefox experiences an unexpected shutdown (read: crashes). This feature is neat, but causes many disk writes. Too many for an SSD. Disable it like this:
 +
 +a. Type in the URL bar of Firefox:
 +
 +//​about:​config//​
 +
 +Press Enter.
 +
 +b. Now you're being presented with a warning. Ignore it and click on the button "I accept the risk!"​.
 +
 +c. Type in the filter bar: //​sessionstore//​
 +
 +c. Double-click on the item called //​browser.sessionstore.interval//​. The default interval is 15000, which means 15 seconds. Add three zeros to the existing value, so that it becomes: 15000000 and click the OK button.
 +
 +d. Close Firefox and launch it again. Now you've practically disabled the session restore feature.
