Firefox History has a really huge bug in it

Hi

There is a quite massive bug in the whole History function of the browser - if you visit a page for the 2nd time, it will remove the previous entry from the history completely and replaces it with the most recent date and time... which kind of removes the whole point of having a history database in the first place...

Plus! There should be a default option in Firefox that keeps the whole history forever, not to delete all the previous history after 6 months, so that you shouldnt have to look up more addons to fix this very important issue (and then even hope that the addon actually works or wont lose anything after updates....)

so this should be fixed ASAP...

I dunno... it seems that how it's supposed to work. Why have memory issues and taking hits on browser performance for a History File that could pile-up for years? That's what Bookmarks are for.

I'm trying to delete older History going back to last year. I can only select about 5 or 6 screens worth of links at time, as I get a huge CPU spike if I try to delete too much at once or keep successively deleting a bunch of 5 or 6 screens sets in one session.

This isn't really a bug, but is about how Firefox works. Firefox only shows the most recent visits and hides older visits. Older visits aren't removed, but are merely hidden (not displayed).

You can look at this Nirsoft utility.

ok, that seems to be working with older dates, but the title of the page is still replaced with the most recent one for all dates.... and can this full history be implemented/displayed in the default Firefox history tool also, or if not then why....

and what about the expiring history that also needs a separate addon to work
