Browsing History In Firefox

more options

Hello,

I recently deleted my entire browsing history in firefox it was a complete accident. Is there anyway that I can get this information back. If anyone could help I would greatly appreciate it. I'm working on an Macbook pro.

You would need a backup copy of places.sqlite to recover the lost history.

If you use the Time Machine or other backup then try to restore the places.sqlite file from this backup.

Firefox uses two locations for the Firefox profile folder.

Location used for the main profile that keeps your personal data (Root Directory on about:profiles).

  • ~/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/<profile>

In Mac OS X v10.7 and later, the "~/Library" folder in the Home directory is a hidden folder.

Thank You for your response I really do appreciate it. But I've never used Time Machine (I've never had my computer backed up on an external hard drive). Is there any other way to restore the history that I've deleted or to restore firefox back to an eailer time.

很抱歉,这个历史记录如果是存在于Windows系统上,那么一般在C盘的Mozilla浏览器文件夹里有关于历史记录的文件夹,那里面如果没有删除应该还可以找到的,如果是mac的话应该也是有类似的抢救措施,不过一般情况下来讲,这个历史记录是可以有缓存的。 Sorry,I don't speak Chinese and English
