Forget this website

Posted

Hi there,

I was checking my browsing history and cleaning it up a little bit. I wanted to delete a single Google-hit, but then I accidentally pressed the 'Forget this website-button'. So now all my Google-hits are gone. Is there a possibility I can undo this action?

Thank you in advance!

Kind regards,

Gerrit

No, you cannot restore History. Fortunately it's just history, and nothing prevents you from visiting those pages again

If you use the Time Machine or other backup then try to restore file(s) from this backup.

You would need to restore places.sqlite (bookmarks and history) in the profile folder.

You can use the button on the "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page to go to the current Firefox profile folder or use the about:profiles page.
