How do I request a new feature for Firefox

Posted

When I use Google Maps (for instance) it creates a huge number of entries in my browsing history, which makes it difficult to use the History to see what I was actually doing on any particular day.

The history viewer has an option to "forget about this site", but that seems to take a looooong time to run, and sometimes kills the browers.

I'd like to suggest extending Firefox's "history" to allow the user to specify a list of "verbose" sites that can be (mostly) ignored by the history mechanism, so that it only shows (or even records) one URL for that site per (say) minute.

How would I do that? I cannot find anything telling me how to make a "feature request"...

You can open the history sidebar and sort by Date and Site. Find the website(s) or domains you want to remove and press the delete key. You can also do a search for this domain in the History Manager (Library) and select all items (Ctrl+A).
