History is not working and can't go back on browser.

Posted

After the most recent update to firefox, it is not working.

It has stopped remembering information, when I type on the top bar, previous search items don't come up, there is no history in my history and when I try to go back a page I can't it doesn't allow me to. So for some reason it is not saving any of the data or sites I am going on. It has also deleted all my bookmarks. So I did a bit of searching download the maintenance repair addon, tried this no luck. So I completed a clean-install of firefox, and I'm still stuck with the same issue.

Anyone got any ideas? I've always used firefox but after a week of trying to figure this out I'm considering other browsers, but I don't want to leave! hahaha

You can check for problems with the <b>places.sqlite</b> database file in the Firefox profile folder. *http://kb.mozillazine.org/Bookmarks_history_and_toolbar_buttons_not_working_-_Firefox *https://support.mozilla.org/kb/Bookmarks+not+saved#w_fix-the-bookmarks-file *Places Maintenance: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/places-maintenance/
