How to erase the existance of an accidentally visited website?

Posted

So, I deleted the history and cookies of an accidentally visited website, and i asked a friend to find a website I had done this with. He somehow found it in the files of my computer. I went browsing around and haven't found the folder that has a list of websites you've visited. Please tell me a way to acess this folder. (windows 8.1)

You can remove all data stored in Firefox from a specific domain via "Forget About This Site" in the right-click context menu of an history entry ("History -> Show All History" or "View -> Sidebar -> History").

Using "Forget About This Site" will remove all data stored in Firefox from this domain like history and cookies and passwords and exceptions and cache, so be cautious. If you have a password or other data from that domain that you do not want to lose then make sure to backup this data or make a note.

You can't recover from this 'forget' unless you have a backup of involved files.

If you revisit a 'forgotten' website then data from that website will be saved once again.

This doesn't work. There is always a backup. AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\########.default\storage\default is the storage location, and it also lists (most) of the websites you've visited, regardless of the 'forget' option. This doesn't seem to store all websites visited, and I am trying to find the folder that holds this.

The storage folder is part of "Cookies and Site Data -> Manage Data" and you should be able to remove it there. You can create a block exception if you do not want Firefox to store data for this domain.
