Since browser.storage.local has bad performance on Microsoft Edge, we store filter data there in IndexedDB. However, data in IndexedDB are lost when browsing data are cleared.

What to change

Backup the list of subscribed filter list URLs along any custom filters in browser.storage.local in order to restore the filter data when IndexedDB is cleared.

Make sure that the performance is still better than when using only browser.storage.local in the first place. If necessary consider limiting writes to browser.storage.local to once per minute (or similar).
