I have tried numerous times so why won't firefox clear my browsing history?

Posted

I am totally at a loss as I cannot seem to get the browser history to clear. I have been using firefox for years and have never encountered this issue. I have scanned with my virus program and malwarebytes and nothing seems to help.

Thanks for any help offered.
