Whenever pc or firefox crashes firefox deletes all history. Is there any way to make it so it stops doing this? I know I can refresh but it is getting old.

Sometimes when my pc crashes or firefox crashes it deletes all of my history when reopening it. I've had this issue for several months and I'm starting to get tired of refreshing firefox all the time and was wondering if anyone else had this issue and knows how to fix it.

We're sorry to hear that Firefox is crashing. In order to assist you better, please follow the steps below to provide us crash IDs to help us learn more about your crash.

The crash report is several pages of data. We need the report numbers to see the whole report.

So I did what you said to do and everything is updated. Then today firefox crashed again and this time I couldn't even open it up because it kept crashing so I had to restart to even refresh.
