My history is not working

Posted

When I click on history in the tool bar menu it shows the history for the day. When I click show all history, it takes to the library which shows no history.

You can check for problems with the places.sqlite database file (bookmarks, history) in the Firefox profile folder.

If the Places Maintenance extension can't repair the places.sqlite database file then remove all places.sqlite file(s) in the Firefox profile folder to make Firefox rebuild the places.sqlite database file from the most recent JSON backup in the bookmarkbackups folder. You can check whether the bookmarkbackups folder has a useful backup to ensure that the bookmarks can be rebuild.
