Downloads and History tabs deleted in library. How to restore?

Posted

Just found out that my nephew deleted my history tab and downloaded tab in the library and I do not know where to find it, all I see is bookmarks tab. Is there any way to restore it? Please help.

Firefox doesn't keep a backup of the History like is done with the bookmarks.

Windows may have created a shadow copy of the places.sqlite file and in that case you can try to restore a previous copy is there is one of a suitable date and time. Make sure to backup the current places.sqlite file.

You can use this button to go to the currently used Firefox profile folder:

I've attached a picture and that's the library now. The History tab should have the "yesterday, today, last 7 days" right? So mine is empty. And the downloads is also gone. I don't know where it is unless I clicked the download sign and open the containing folder. I only have the bookmarks tab.
