    Places is the bookmarks and history management system introduced in Firefox 3. It offers increased flexibility and complex querying to make handling the places the user goes easier and more convenient. It also includes new features including favicon storage and the ability to annotate pages with arbitrary information. It also introduces new user interfaces for managing all this information; see Places on the Mozilla wiki.

    Places stores its data in an SQLite database using the mozStorage interfaces.
