Removing History but not Bookmarks (Local files)

more options

Hello,

I am a computer technician currently trying to write a small python script that will clear a users cache, cookies, and history in Firefox on a Mac.

From what I can tell, both the history and bookmarks for a user is saved in one file named "places" (specifically under "/Users/[username]/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/[jargon].default-release/places.sqlite")

Is there a way to clear just the history for a user, that doesn't go through the browser GUI? I would really like to avoid mixing CLT with Selenium or something of that sort with python.

Any information is welcome!

Thank you,

Ah thank you for the information, seems like I have some more things to learn!

EDIT: With that information as some direction, I was able to use a method from an Ubuntu forum where they navigated to the "places.sqlite" file in the terminal. Opened the file with Sqlite3 and removed the history table with "DELETE FROM moz_historyvisits;"

Seems like it worked like a charm!

You can only remove history properly by running the appropriate SQLite statements.

Hilfreich?
