The Hidden History of Firefox...

First I have to say that I find Firefox very well conceived. I am a big fan and I think I will still be using it. However.....

It is amazing to see how many un-answered or un-solved posts on "How do I delete visited websites from the url-bar" or "History will not clear in address bar" can be found here. I am not so much annoyed by this flaw in Firefox as I am WORRIED by whom and where the undeletable datas from the History are stored? Where on my computer can I have access to them? Are they maybe stored online as well? Do Firefox have access to them? In this case there might be a slight breach in our Privacy Rights..........

I may be a little paranoiac here but there is an undeniable observation: Firefox won't let us access to all of the datas saved by the History. If someone could be able to tell me where on my hardw drive (or elsewhere) the visited websites are stored, that would prevent me from thinking that a serious conspiracy is being undertaken within Firefix's staff.

Quote: Note that Bookmarks and History are stored in the same location (in the places.sqlite database file) and both History and Bookmarks are accessible from the Library window.
