I have Firefox quantum, now it seems I can't get my browsing history by date, not even yesterday, only todays history. only today

Posted

Sorry I couldn't find a category for finding History.

I am using Firefox Quantum, I don't know what has changed but recently I can't seem get my browsing history for say: yesterday or last week like I used to do so easily, I can only get todays. I used to click on history and it all came up, too easy, but now as I said I am only getting todays history. Have Firefox updated and eliminated the search by date option? I have tried to google it but to no avail. I did forget to bookmark something I was reading the day before but I can't seem to find out how to find history by date that I used to have.

I am using a laptop, Windows 7.

Hoping someone can help Cheers Deborah

Hi, you checked that you're not clearing the history on each browser close? You can check that on Preferences => Privacy & security => History

I did double check that, the only option on clear recent history is-: Last 2 hours , which what was highlighted. Last hour Last 4 hours Today Everything. The Remember history is selected.

No Deborah, I were talking about this option => https://ibb.co/4VGCzDk I think you would have selected "Use custom settings for history" instead of "Remember history"

Preferences => Privacy & security => History There are two options, Firefox quantum edition will <desired option> and the button to clear the history that you refer below. Please, check again in the privacy & security section of the preferences.

Checked my history this morning and it showed all my history for yesterday, that is a start as before all I got was today's. I don't know what I did but it is working so far so good, only hope it continues on.

Thank you for your help Urucode, I hope I won't annoy you again on this.
