Why do I have 1.4 GB of space taken up by [pending] crash reports? There is a folder inside of this one (in screenshot) where most of the used space is located. Why on earth is there that much space taken up by pending crash reports?

Maybe more importantly, can I just delete all the content in this folder without adverse affects?

They're pending because you haven't submitted them to firefox. Delete them unless you care about looking at them

Mozilla has disabled auto submission in all browser versions in response to https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1424373

Go to about:crashes in your browser to see pending and submitted crashes and there is a button to remove reports.

  • That's odd, I've seen them automatically submitted in the past - how should I submit them and will they delete automatically? (And did I change something to switch auto-crash-reporting off?) – user3.1415927 Apr 3 '18 at 13:05
