In the latest version of Gmail, no search form history will save, but it does in the old version of Gmail. I have checked all clear history settings and they are all correct, as it does not delete any other form history including the old version of Gmail. This only occurs in the new version, which is why I've continued to use the older version. I have also checked for plugin conflicts and there are none. I'm on WinXP-SP3 using the latest 3.6.6 version of Firefox.

whenever i close firefox (osx 10.6.3, firefox 3.6.6), i come back to find the history gone. i've looked for answers and tried all sorts: my prefs all are set to saving history, i'm not set to start in private browsing, i've downloaded a new copy of firefox and replaced the old, and following advice from a forum i went into about.config and checked that general.useragent was not in bold, it wasn't. the problem even persisted when i recently upgraded from osx tiger to snow leopard

the weirdest thing is that using history>show all history, it is completely blank when i start up. but if i type stuff into the url bar, it comes up with history results (not bookmarks, i've checked) that i haven't visited in months, years even, there's history results for maps for a game i sold 2 years ago
