Unncessary Browsing History - Gmail/Outlook/Facebook.

more options

Just wondering if any of the developers could add a domain exclusion option within the browser history settings where users could exclude the domains which they don't want the browser to record the history of.

Now many of you would argue that why don't you use private mode. Blah blah blah. But it's not the same thing. I gotta use my GMail, Google-drive, Outlook, or Facebook, etc everyday, so the private mode is not an option.

These domain URLs are not necessarily required to be stored and synced every day after day when nobody or at least 99% of people are not gonna use them ever.

Would be better, if users get the option where they can control which domains they want to keep the history of. This would offset millions and billions bytes of the data from Mozilla and also speed up and improve the history management.

Please share your thoughts.

Hi,

The people who answer questions here, for the most part, are other users volunteering their time (like me), not Mozilla employees or developers. If you want to leave feedback for developers, you can go to the Firefox Help menu and select either Share ideas and feedback… or Submit feedback…, depending on your Firefox version. Alternatively, you can use this link. Your feedback gets collected by a team of people who read it and gather data about the most common issues.

You can also file a bug report or feature request. See File a bug report or feature request for Mozilla products for details.
