You should be able to set it in Edit -> Preferences (Maybe it is in Tools -> Options on your platform), Privacy section. Either of these two should work:

  • Select it to "Firefox will: Remember history".
  • Select "Firefox will: Use custom settings":
    • Tick 'Remember my browsing history';
    • Make sure that browsing history is not ticked in the clear-on-exit list if you choose to enable this feature.
