Browsing history won't save

I want my firefox to save my browsing history locally. It only saves a day or so at a time. I use adblock, video speed controller, DuckduckGO privacy essentials, and Tampermonkey extensions. I've looked through all their options for anything that might be causing my history to not be saved, especially the Duck duck go one but there's no setting that shouldn't be on as far as I see. Why won't firefox save my browsing history?

Click on history tab, then on show all history. In the sidebar on the left, click on history to expand, then you can choose which time frame you want to look at. Hope this helps.
