History Feed Changed by Mistakenly Clicking Wrong Menu Selection

more options

How do I reverse what happened to 'History' when I accidentally clicked 'Forget About This Site' instead of 'Delete Page' on the drop-down menu for the highlighted page in the history feed.

I realise that I caused this problem last night when I clicked the wrong option in the drop-down menu but only became aware of what I had done when I went to my history feed this afternoon. I was looking in my history feed to find a site that I visited yesterday and noticed that a website that I have visited several times earlier today is not appearing in the feed. It is the same site that I clicked the wrong selection in the drop-down menu for last night.

How do I get 'History' to start showing that site in the feed again?

Did you close the browser after? If not, you might be able to undo the forget site. Open the Bookmarks Manager. You can use <Control> Z or; At the top of the window, press the Organize tab and use Undo from here.

Note: Forget Site also removed the password from the manager. I don't know if the Undo will restore that.

New history should be saved and displayed. I don't think flushing the old history should affect that.

Firefox 93+ have a confirmation dialog for Forget About This Site so it is more difficult to use it accidentally.

Note that the Firefox 78 ESR series reached EOL with version 78.15.0esr last Fall and is no longer supported.
