That's what I thought. So why do I get the missing sqlite3 error when running the script against a windows box with firefox installed? Do I have to put an sqlite3 file somewhere in msf's path for the script to execute properly?

enum_firefox and enum_chrome require sqlite3 so that they can read
their target browser's SQLite formated database. It has nothing to do
with your database connection in MSF and is therefor unrelated to the
deprecation of sqlite.

Or am I getting things really confused and the sqlite3 requirement in these meterpreter scripts has nothing to do with being logged into sqlite? I installed sqlite3 in my ubuntu server but still I'm getting the missing sqlite3 error when i run those scripts in a meterpreter session. I feel like I'm making some silly mistake since I had the enum_firefox script working before my server had to be reinstalled from scratch.
