I can't find any controls to show more than today's history. I haven't reinstalled Firefox or changed anything significant. I use Windows 10, latest version, and much prefer Firefox to Edge. I would be grateful for some clear instructions, please.

I haven't turned history off, I'm not in Private Browsing Mode and I can see today's sites. I just can't see anything from yesterday backwards. Is there something I might have done inadvertently yesterday to erase the history? The Settings button is greyed out, because Clear History is turned off.

I think I have found the problem and fixed it. I use Advanced System Care which has a General Settings/Automatic Service/Autoclean option to erase today's history on shutdown which was turned on. I have turned it off, so I'll see tomorrow.
