Hi, Basically, my computer crashed and I had to do a full reinstall. I did not have time to create a screenshot of the account passwords for a crypto account I have. Does Firefox hold browser history anywhere OTHER than my computer? I would need to retrieve my browsing history for a specific Date and Hour. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

I refreshed Firefox, my config are : browser.newtab.url = about:newtab, Firefox will: Remember history...

Thank you for your help.

Hello,

I've been using my own Sync 1.5 server since January without having any issue until this week.

I am unable to sync my clients, getting the "Sync encountered an error while synching: Unknown error, Sync will try again automatically."

Here's the log: https://pastebin.mozilla.org/8836193

The problem seems to happen at line 101 (on pastebin).

Here's some more info about my setup.

Syncserver 1.5.2 installed on a local server running on Linux.

I have 1 Windows client, 2 Linux clients. None of them can sync. All uses Firefox 38.0.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Phil

Today,I just updated to Firefox 43 and I have been online and all, but now, Some of that I visit or browse online is not showing up in my history (It shows some of them but not for searching stuff. For example this support websit does not show in history). I already checked on privacy and history is on Remember History but nothing have been solved. Each and everything that I visited online has shown up in my history before.How can I solve this problem? I look forward to hearing you soon.

I though that if I browsed in a private window that there would be no history record? This is the case with all other internet browsers that I use and it is automatic. I have never needed to go into settings. The Mozilla private browsing has remembered every site that I've been on and does not "forget" them when I log off. The history IS shown. What's more, I can NOT delete them with ctrl/shift/delete. This immensly irritating!!!!!! Please offer a solution.

I had no problem playing Netflix videos before FF 66. I'm now on FF 66.0.1. I disabled all add-ons, restarted FF to no avail. This issue MIGHT be DRM related since preview vids play correctly in Netflix. They aren't DRM controlled. The full videos, which are DRM controlled, do not play. 'Play DRM-Controlled Content' is checked in my FF settings. I can play full videos as expected in Chrome. I prefer not to for obvious reasons. The NF error code is F7701-1003. The msg is 'There appears to be a problem with Firefox which is preventing Netflix from starting playback'. I've gone through the steps that NF suggest for this issue. Doing that doesn't resolve the issue.

Despite my repeated going into Options > Privacy and telling it to remember my history, Firefox continues to wipe my browsing history clean every single time I close out of the browser. It seems to remember my cookies and logins just fine, but for some reason it refuses to retain my browsing history - which is annoying, given that having access to it would by and large make browsing the net faster and make sure I remember some things. Any advice? Thank you in advance.

I know this Q was asked recently but I cannot follow the disjointed and part missing thread. Would appreciate if someone could give me a complete reply. I know how to display hidden files and find my Application Support folder but profile files are all several years old. I have up to date Time Machine backups.

I am running Firefox 58.0.2 on OSX but inadvertently ran Firefox 34 and now my v58 has lost all history and bookmarks.

I'm using the built-in dark theme of Firefox. In these days I changed the background color and the folder icons in the Bookmarks/History sidebar using this codes (I'm not absolutely an expert of codes, I've found them by searching the web and the old questions in our support forum.):

/* Sidebar color change */
#viewButton, #sidebar-header, #sidebar-box, #sidebar, .sidebar-placesTree{
-moz-appearance: none !important;
color: #f9f9fa !important; /*text color*/
background-color: #1c1c1c !important; /* background color */
}
/* Drop down arrow - next to "view" */

.button-menu-dropmarker,
.button-menubutton-dropmarker {
 filter: invert(85%);
}
/* Edit folder icons */
#bookmarks-view treechildren::-moz-tree-image(container),
#PlacesToolbarItems toolbarbutton[container="true"] .toolbarbutton-icon,
#PlacesToolbarItems menu[container="true"] .menu-iconic-left,
#BMB_bookmarksPopup menu[container="true"] .menu-iconic-icon,
#bookmarksMenu menu[container="true"] .menu-iconic-icon {
  fill: #e8bb00 !important; /* slightly muted gold */
}
  /* Live Bookmark (RSS Feed) */
#bookmarks-view treechildren::-moz-tree-image(container, livemark),
#PlacesToolbarItems toolbarbutton[container="true"][livemark="true"] .toolbarbutton-icon,
#PlacesToolbarItems menu[container="true"][livemark="true"] .menu-iconic-left,
#BMB_bookmarksPopup menu[container="true"][livemark="true"] .menu-iconic-icon,
#bookmarksMenu menu[container="true"][livemark="true"] .menu-iconic-icon {
  fill: orange !important;
}
  /* Smart bookmark folder */
#bookmarks-view treechildren::-moz-tree-image(container, query),
#PlacesToolbarItems toolbarbutton[container="true"][query="true"] .toolbarbutton-icon,
#PlacesToolbarItems menu[container="true"][query="true"] .menu-iconic-left,
#BMB_bookmarksPopup menu[container="true"][query="true"] .menu-iconic-icon,
#bookmarksMenu menu[container="true"][query="true"] .menu-iconic-icon {
  fill: #69c !important; /* similar to blue smart folder color */
}
/* These "containers" are SVG in the sidebar, not yet on the menu */
#bookmarks-view treechildren::-moz-tree-image(container, OrganizerQuery_BookmarksMenu) {
  fill: olive !important;
}
#bookmarks-view treechildren::-moz-tree-image(container, OrganizerQuery_BookmarksToolbar) {
  fill: olive !important;
}
#bookmarks-view treechildren::-moz-tree-image(container, OrganizerQuery_UnfiledBookmarks) {
  fill: olive !important;
}
/* Avoid overriding classic Bookmarks Toolbar and Other Bookmarks icons in menus */
#BMB_bookmarksPopup #BMB_bookmarksToolbar.menu-iconic-icon, 
#bookmarksMenu #bookmarksToolbarFolderMenu.menu-iconic-icon {
  list-style-image: url("chrome://browser/skin/places/bookmarksToolbar.png") !important;
}
#BMB_bookmarksPopup #BMB_unsortedBookmarks.menu-iconic-icon, 
#bookmarksMenu #menu_unsortedBookmarks.menu-iconic-icon {
  list-style-image: url("chrome://browser/skin/places/unsortedBookmarks.png") !important;
}

I didn't find how to change the "clock" icon color (white could be ok) in the History sidebar at the left of the "Today, Yesterday, etc". items. I attach a screenshot (it is Firefox in Italian, Cronologia = History). Do you have any suggestion to solve my problem?

I expect all my pinned and other tabs to open when I start. Unfortunately, I closed and there was another window open, so when I started next time they are all gone. This is infuriating. Please tell me there is a way to get them all back without having to build it all from scratch. I got here because after the update today, 10/26/18, there was a tab to restore and another tab "See what's new..." I did the restore and everything was right, but I closed it and there was another window open, so when I closed it, it was was what came back. Do I have to save that setup? If so, how. I'm furious that "they" did this to me.
