We currently store all filter data as one value in storage.local. However, values are currently limited to 1MB (and 5MB total) on Edge, causing Adblock Plus to re-initialized on each startup, as with EasyList alone that quota is already exceeded and storage.local.set() silently fails.

What to change

When storing files in storage.local in lib/io.js split files up into multiple key-value pairs.

We have decided to not split the files, but use a different storage mechanism instead (IndexedDB). Closing this ticket.
