Check the settings in Options > Privacy > Clear history... > Settings. If that is not the reason, maybe you are using Private Browsing mode? Otherwise, you might have a damaged places.sqlite file.

Check the date and time in the clock on your computer: (double) click the clock icon on the Windows Taskbar.

Question owner

The time is right on my computer but my history isn't updating. It hasn't updated at all today it's been about four days now. I am not browsing on private either so I don't know what to do.

You can check for problems with the places.sqlite database file in the Firefox Profile Folder.


Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).

  • Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe mode start window or otherwise make changes.
