Firefox won't save history longer than a few days
My Firefox only saves the history for a few days and I don't know why. That are about 300 sites. Probably the longest it saves are the last 7 days. When I go to about:config and type "places.history.expiration.transient_current_max_pages" it gives me a value about 60000. So why won't Firefox save up to 60000 sites of history then? I am currently on Firefox ESR.
Thanks for any help.

Profile data can be removed or not recorded several ways;
- 1) Running Firefox in Private Mode (nothing is recorded)
- 2) Privacy settings; (In the address bar, type about:preferences#privacy<enter>)
- 3) Many disk cleaners and anti-virus type programs can remove data from browsers. Open their settings and have them leave the browsers alone.
- 4) Mal-ware.

Note: Windows 8 and Windows 10 have built-in flash players and Adobe will cause a conflict. Install the plugin only. Not the ActiveX.
