Is there any pattern to it?

One possibility: Firefox's history list only shows the latest visit to each URL. So if you are missing previous visits to a particular URL, that's normal. You can use an external program (or possibly an add-on) to pull out a complete list.

For example, I use this one: http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/mozilla_history_view.html

No, it is not previous sites. These are new websites that I visit.

You should see the latest visit for each URL opened in a regular window. Of course, you won't see history for visits to URLs in private windows.

If Firefox stops recording history, it could indicate a problem with the database file used to store history and bookmarks, named places.sqlite (which is in your currently active profile folder). Possibly another process is accessing/locking the file so Firefox can't update it, or possibly the file has a corruption issue.

The next time this happens, you could try running the "Verify Integrity" function. That's here:

Open Firefox's Troubleshooting Information page using any of these methods:

  • "3-bar" menu button > "?" Help > Troubleshooting Information
  • (menu bar) Help > Troubleshooting Information
  • type or paste about:support in the address bar and press Enter

Near the bottom, there is a section titled Places Database -- that's the file which stores history and bookmarks. Click the button labeled Verify Integrity. There may be a 10-15 second delay before results appear.

If all is well, the report that appears below the button usually starts with:

> Task: checkIntegrity
+ The places.sqlite database is sane
+ The favicons.sqlite database is sane

Does yours say that, or something else? You can select and copy the report, and then paste it into a reply for review and comment.

Some pages might be opened in an iframe and in such a case you might not see a history item.

Try to visit the homepage of the website to see whether this creates an history item.

Just to be sure;

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem.

  • switch to the DEFAULT theme: "3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Themes
  • do NOT click the "Refresh Firefox" button on the Safe Mode start window
