I've noticed over time that the History, or Library or whatever Mozilla wants to call the History, does not record all pages that are visited - and now it's getting worse and mixing pages up.
It's just been an annoyance until recently, but it has now caused me and my partner real issues, especially with his work.
Today it happened again but I have the time to actually come and tell someone about it in hopes that it actually gets fixed...
Here is what happened today, as happens all too frequently when I go to use the HISTORY function in Firefox accross multiple devices and installs over the past year or so;
I wanted to find a video I watched on youtube on the morning of the 7th November to show my friend, I know the title of it so I started typing it into the address bar to bring it up in the HISTORY but nothing appeared - here we go again I thought.
I might have thought maybe I misremembered the title if this had not happened multiple times already but I went through the motions anyway.
I know exactly when I watched it, so I opened the HISTORY and - because there is no ability to search for an actual date range for some daft reason - I started scrolling.
I got to the 7th, and there were videos I watched before, and videos I watched after, but not the video I was looking for - but there is a video I watched another day there in it's place.
So I opened youtube, went to my history there, scrolled back to the same videos, and sure enough, the video I am looking for is there and the video that is present in my HISTORY is not.
In the screen clippings attached, You can see that in my Firefox HISTORY and Youtube watch history match except for one thing, the 4 minute long "Contouring 101" video that I was originally looking for is present in my youtube watch history, but not on my Firefox HISTORY.
In it's place is a video titled "Life Changing, Tom Shares the Fight for his Life." - which is a 30 minute video I watched on the 31st of October - according to my youtube history and my memory - but not my Firefox HISTORY.
You can see the gap in my Firefox HISTORY where the "Contouring 101" video should be is just 5 minutes, makes sense it took me 5 mins to watch a 4:17 min video and then choose what to click on next, right?
I used to love the history function on browsers, years and years ago it was so good. Now it seems to just be an unmaintained afterthough with minimal functionality and no thought to accuracy.
is there any way we can go back to a accurate, concise and functional HISTORY? Or do I have to find another browser or third party solution?
Thanks for your time.
