How do I restore/recover my history from more than a month? Or extend it past one.

Veröffentlicht

I can't go back more than a month on my history, nor extend it past one month if I have stuff I want to look up that I have looked for. And if I accidently right click forget about this site since its right below delete page, I tend to lose an entire thing instead of one specific thing. Both need to be fixed with an undo feature.

Web browsing history and search history are saved in a slightly different manner. Search history is combined with "form history" doesn't have a user viewable interface as with browsing history; plus the "control" for clearing / erasing differs. That makes it difficult to learn how long search & form history is retained; my own experience is that there is no real time limit, but I tend to clear search history daily to limit the "history drop-down" (for "suggestions") that appears in the Search Bar when typing in a new search parameter. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/browsing-history-firefox https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/clear-recent-searches-search-bar

That said, when using the Library window for viewing / deleting browsing history as long as Firefox is open the 'standard keyboard command' for Undo {Ctrl & Z} or using the Organize menu-item > Undo after deleting history entries will work. But that Undo retention feature is cleared if the user closes Firefox. I'm not sure if {Ctrl & Z} works in the Search Bar or not, never tried it.

You can usually press the Delete key to remove the currently selected item(s) instead of using the right-click context menu. In some cases you need Shift+Delete.
