thank you both so much for a quick response to a first-time poster, i didn't expect that!

firefox indeed uses windows 'short date' format, so if i change it in the ancient date & time 'app' to, for example, M/d/yyyy, ff history will also show the year.

awesome!

and might there not be some magic trick whereby ff could show the year but i could still have short-date format without it, for taskbar declutter? by having ff use long date instead of short, for instance.

thank you muchly! mark
