True, the UTC16 cuts the storage capacity in half, but I did test the about
:config in FF. Went to a website that will test the limit, using the default value in about
:config - it went to 50000000. I then changed the about
:config in FF and retested, this time it went to 100000000. Granted, this was in FF12; maybe Mozilla changed their mind in a more recent version, but in FF12, I was able to successfully increase the storage space available.
