Firefox's history only remembers the last time a certain web address is visited.

Posted

For example, I visited www.example.com on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Of all the 3 times, Firefox only remembers the visit on Wednesday. Because when I visited www.example.com on Tuesday, the history is renewed, deleting record of Monday; when I visit www.example.com on Wednesday, record of Tuesday evaporated.

So, no matter how many times I visit a certain web address, Firefox only remembers the last time. Is there a way to tweak Firefox to make it faithfully record history?

I'm not a native English speaker. I hope my poor English clearly describe the question.

Thanks in advance for your answers.

Firefox does store all the times that you visit a web page to be able to calculate the visit count, but only shows the last time you visited that link.

Firefox updates the History, because the website content get updated day to day. so Firefox remain the last visit.

If you don't like the history or cookies. make use of "Start Private Browsing " get more details about Private browsing http://mzl.la/MNBtnG

Thanks very much. Although SQLite Manager is quite hard for me to manipulate, it seems to be a powerful tool. It really works!
