Can you display history as a 'webpage' instead of a sidebar? If not natively, then add-in?

I prefer Firefox to Chrome but Chrome has it this way for preferences and history, where you can even bookmark it. It treats history, settings and downloads as a page or a tab in its own right, which can be bookmarked, which I prefer. I was wondering if you could do this for FireFox, or via an add-on or if a request could be issued.

You can use a chrome URI to open the Library in a Firefox tab.

  • chrome://browser/content/places/places.xul

In Firefox 73 and newer use:

  • chrome://browser/content/places/places.xhtml
