I would like to be able to retain all my browsing history, is it possible to adjust the settings on the mobile app?

The setting is in there to make sure that the file does not get too big, however if you open up the about:config page you can change the default.
- In the Location bar, type about:config and press Enter. The about:config "This might void your warranty!" warning page may appear.
- Click I'll be careful, I promise!, to continue to the about:config page.
- search for "history"
- the value: borowser:history_expire_days or browser:sessionhistory_max_entries
Please post back with any questions or if this solved your issue!
Thanks guigs2 for taking the time to answer my question, worked a treat.
I would not assume that those prefs have any affect in Firefox for Android. We don't use places.sqlite on Android, the code is much different.
I changed to number from 50 to 50000, it didn't work, still allowing only one month worth of history browsing. I rebooted the computer, and it still allows only one month worth of browsing.
Any other suggestions much appreciated!! I need to look up some important info a few months ago. May thanks.
