Trying to stop immediate History Library updates

This is really a minor issue, and I think it might just end up being a new feature that needs to be added to the next version of Firefox. But my problem is, oftentimes, I'm browsing my history library looking for sites that I looked for maybe 2 or 3 weeks ago. I scroll down quite a ways, eventually find what I'm looking for, and then click on the site to open it. The problem I have, which is really merely an annoyance, is that when I click on one page, my library immediately exits out of whatever time frame I'm currently in and sets the time frame to "Today" and highlights the most recent site I've visited, which of course, is the one I just clicked on. The reason this is annoying is that when I'm browsing my history, there are usually 3 or 4 or more sites that I want to re-visit, usually all from around the same time frame. It becomes very tiresome to have to re-click on the correct month or week, and scroll, scroll, scroll, once again, each time I want to re-visit a site, because every time I click on a site it re-sends me to "Today." I wish there was someway to change my history settings so that it wouldn't do this and that, regardless of whatever websites I decide to visit, my history library always stays in the place where I last left it. I hope someone is able to understand what I'm trying to say. Thanks for any help you can provide and don't hesitate to ask for clarification!

Hi, Firefox was uninstalled on my computer, is there anyway to access the internet history when this program was in use? Is it anywhere on my hard drive? If I reinstall it, would the history be available? Thanks so much for your help.

When I type a word or mispelled web address in the address/location bar, Firefox performs a search using a search engine. In my case, it uses an obscure Bresnan website and I want to use google. Is there a way to control which search engine it uses?

Before today (when I updated FF) whenever I would close FF browser it would log me out of everything I was logged in to (ie. gmail, FB, Hotmail etc.) which is the way that I like it. However since updating my browser it keeps me logged in to everything, I have changed all of my settings so that everything is supposed to be cleared when FF closes but it doesn't change anything I am still logged in to all the sites. How do I change this back?
