Show all history only shows today, nothing earlier

Posted

Back in the day I was able to Click on History, Show All History and see the sites I had visited in the past. (I don't remember how far back I could go.) Lately I can only see Today. I am using Windows 8.1 with FF 37.0.2

In case you use "Clear history when Firefox closes" or otherwise clear history:

  • do not clear the Browsing History

Clearing "Site Preferences" clears all exceptions for cookies, images, pop-up windows, software installation, passwords, and other website specific data.
