Actual dates missing from Added and Last Modified columns in History

more options

When opening History the column headers are there but no dates are shown in the Added and Last Modified columns. These columns are selected in Views and the listed web pages appear to be correctly sorted into Added date order. My browser is up to date an is 100.0.2 64 bit. Thanks

According to an answer to a similar question, those details don't appear. Have you seen them previously? There are preferences you can add to about:config to provide such information. I only have time showing because I don't keep history.

The Added and Last Modified columns are only for Bookmarks, but Firefox doesn't hide them when switching to History. Probably it should.

Edit: That is almost exactly what I said last time.

I'm pretty sure this info was available in previous versions (maybe a while ago) and it was often useful when chasing down a part-remembered search. It seems odd not to include it on the page as it is obviously available as the links are sorted in date order. Maybe there's an add-on that does the same. Thanks anyway Paul

Hi Paul, history is collapsed to a single row with a "Most Recent Visit" date/time. In the Places database, Firefox stores all the visits with their individual date/time but this isn't exposed in the Library window (you need to use an add-on or external program to list every visit).
