I used to be able to see a full page of browser history by day, sort it, optionally delete items and/or go to those pages. now it seems all I can do it go to the webpage or delete ALL recent history.

Had the same complaint, but found the solution:

1. Click on the triple-bar "Open menu" icon (top right corner)

2. Click on "History" (clock icon)

3. Click on "View History Sidebar" (top-most item)

Something that looks a lot like the old pull-down History will appear on the left. You can right-click individual items like before.

4. Click the "View" button (next to Search:) to choose one of several selection/sorting options.

Haven't used it enough to decide if it's acceptable or not, but it's not horrible.

(And that is the closest to "praise" that Mozilla will get from me, after this week's outrageously-bungled release. Both the 29.0 product and the release process "inhale briskly".)
