How can I view deleted history?

more options

Hello! I would like to view my history from February 2014, but I am not able to view any history beyond March 2014. I am pretty sure that I deleted all of my history since February, but if anyone thinks that there might be another reason that I am not able to view this history then please let me know.

    Please let me know of all of the ways that you can think of for viewing deleted history. Also, please let me know if it's possible that something besides deletion happened to this history and that I should be looking into other means to view my activity in February 2014.

You can make a backup copy of the current places.sqlite file in the Firefox profile folder and see if you can restore an older copy of the places.sqlite from before you deleted that older history.

You can use this button to go to the currently used Firefox profile folder:

  • Help > Troubleshooting Information > Profile Director: Show Folder (Linux: Open Director; Mac: Show in Finder)

Restore a previous version of a file:

  • Right-click: Properties > Previous Versions

Thank you for your response! I tried what you've suggested, but I don't believe that the previous version is available any more. The only previous version available was last modified 04/17 at 3 am, and I'm looking for history from February 27th. Do you, or does anyone else, know of any other options?
