I am in need of a history recovery for a specific date (March 19th 2016). I managed to find the sites on that specific date but when I clicked on them to view them, they get deleted. How can I bring them back? I need the full list again.

You can look at this extension:

Click the search button to update/populate the list after changing settings (no need to type search terms).


Firefox only shows the most recent visit of a specific URL and opening a link for inspection will create a new history entry. A possible workaround to avoid creating new history entries is to open a link in a private browsing tab/window Easiest is to use the history sidebar in a new private window.
