Increase the frequency of your Firefox session backup

You will have no doubt noticed that the Firefox Internet Browser, in the event it locks up, re-launches the program with all of the previous pages open. This is possible thanks to a backup of the session that is underway, with the backup made every ten seconds. If you want to increase the backup frequency, here is how it can be done.
Launch the Firefox browser. In the address bar, enter the command “about:config”, and answer yes to the Mozilla warning.
In the filter part, type “interval” and find the result “bbrowser.sessionstore.interval”. Double click on this and in the dialogue box, enter the value that you want. By default it is 10 000 milliseconds, which is 10 seconds. Opt for 1000 milliseconds, which is 1 second, for example. Click OK to validate this and re-launch the browser.
