Simple guide for using SQLite Manager with Mac Firefox browsing history


Is there a basic beginner step-by-step guide (rather then a detailed user manual) on using SQLite Manager to work with Mac Firefox browsing history? Thank you!

hello, what are you trying to achieve, which isn't possible with the inbuilt firefox history panel?

View, organize, merge, and edit all history in a display that's easier for me to use than the built-in history panel.

Thx — What throws me are directions that say to use a select ‘like this.’ I’m kind of looking for an idiot-proof way of setting up a table with all history browsing entries and their related data. I might not be computer-literate enough to do this.

What I’d like ideally is something like Nirsoft’s BrowsingHistoryView or Dolphin Connect cross-platform browser history syncing.

Firefox doesn't have many option to mange the History. You can only delete items or copy and paste them to bookmarks.

Using the SQLite Manager extension to make changes to the History is not really recommended because a lot of tables are involved.
The extension is suited to inspect or export specific entries occasionally, but not for doing more complicated operations.
