Can I recover non bookmarked history from a crashed computer to my new computer?

I had very many opened websites on firefox when my computer failed, which I had not actually bookmarked. On my new computer there is no history available in firefox so I can't discover what these were. Is there any way in which the history of websites browsed in firefox on my failed computer can be retrieved on the new computer. I've looked at matters online and there seems to be no way to do this. If you know of any way I should be very grateful.

Take the old hard drive and set it us as an external drive. If the drive itself is not damaged, you can get the data from it.
