Sorry, but to be honest with every update FF becomes worse and worse. It's sad because for me it is (on the edge already to say it was) the best browser.

After the latest update I have one more issue - when cleaning history manually (besides that that time Adobe Flash process opens even on a blank tab and I close it from Task manager) the CPU usage becomes extreme. I always clean my history manually, because I wanna chose what to be Forget That Site or only Delete Page (so to keep the cookies for certain pages). I do this everyday. CPU usage jumps up to 90% and when I close FF it stays in Task Manager forever with 60% CPU usage and can't close itself. I need to end FF process every time.

Because all recent issues I disabled many addons. When Googled issues with Adobe Flash (which also might mess with history cleaning) I read some blame AdBlock+ or/and NoScript that in their job of blocking ads and scripts they could cause FF slowness and high CPU usage.

Under the <History> drop down there are normally the last 15 pages listed. However, these are "stuck" to pages visited several days/weeks previously.

If I use the full History recent pages are there and the Back/Forward function works.

I have tried the Places Maintenance extension - without success.

The problem occurred at the same time as the <Recently Closed Tabs> also stuck - that was rectified within about:config by changing browser.sessionstore.max_tabs_undo from 10 to 0 and back to 10

For the History problem, there is nothing obvious there and I do not want to try "random" changes.

Hello-

Firefox doesn't save my history with Quantum 64. This is is really frustrating. I had this issue prior to installing Quantum earlier this year. The minute Midnight strikes on my computer and start up FF it only reveals "Yesterday" history but nothing further back in date. I even tried changing the date back a few days for a moment and no previous history appeared. So there is nothing wrong with my clock/date.

Here's what I have done to try to correct /investigate this:

1. Restored FF Quantum. 2. Deleted all the Places.sqlite files and restarted FF to refresh them. 3. Checked Norton 360 to make sure History Clean Up is OFF. 4. Disabled Malwarebytes, IOBIT's Advance System Care 12 and similar programs for a couple of days. 5. I've had this issue before and even tried to reinstall FF and that didn't do anything.

6. Verify Integrity Results:

> Task: checkIntegrity + The places.sqlite database is sane + The favicons.sqlite database is sane > Task: invalidateCaches + The caches have been invalidated > Task: checkCoherence + The database is coherent > Task: expire + Database cleaned up > Task: originFrecencyStats + Recalculated origin frecency stats > Task: vacuum + Initial database size is 5120KiB + The database has been vacuumed + Final database size is 5120KiB > Task: stats + Places.sqlite size is 5120KiB + Favicons.sqlite size is 768KiB + pragma_user_version is 52 + pragma_page_size is 32768 + pragma_cache_size is -2048 + pragma_journal_mode is wal + pragma_synchronous is 1 + History can store a maximum of 112348 unique pages + Table moz_origins has 250 records + Table moz_places has 380 records + Table moz_historyvisits has 137 records + Table moz_inputhistory has 0 records + Table moz_bookmarks has 516 records + Table moz_bookmarks_deleted has 0 records + Table moz_keywords has 0 records + Table sqlite_sequence has 0 records + Table moz_anno_attributes has 2 records + Table moz_annos has 2 records + Table moz_items_annos has 0 records + Table moz_meta has 7 records + Table sqlite_stat1 has 16 records + Index sqlite_autoindex_moz_origins_1 + Index sqlite_autoindex_moz_inputhistory_1 + Index sqlite_autoindex_moz_bookmarks_deleted_1 + Index sqlite_autoindex_moz_keywords_1 + Index sqlite_autoindex_moz_anno_attributes_1 + Index moz_places_url_hashindex + Index moz_places_hostindex + Index moz_places_visitcount + Index moz_places_frecencyindex + Index moz_places_lastvisitdateindex + Index moz_places_guid_uniqueindex + Index moz_places_originidindex + Index moz_historyvisits_placedateindex + Index moz_historyvisits_fromindex + Index moz_historyvisits_dateindex + Index moz_bookmarks_itemindex + Index moz_bookmarks_parentindex + Index moz_bookmarks_itemlastmodifiedindex + Index moz_bookmarks_dateaddedindex + Index moz_bookmarks_guid_uniqueindex + Index moz_keywords_placepostdata_uniqueindex + Index moz_annos_placeattributeindex + Index moz_items_annos_itemattributeindex > Task: _refreshUI

7. Attached is the list of add-ons. In the past I have disabled and/or deleted them them and still had the issue

I am using Windows 7.

Any tangible help and known cause you have is much appreciated.

Thank you, Steven

Since several months the amount of pages Firefox keeps in its history is drastically reduced. For whatever reason someone made the decision that FF was to be smarter than the user and to decide in his place how much history should be saved - for reason of performance - without giving the user any option to modify this and even without notifying the user about this critical change. There have been several threads about this issue, i.e. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1148703.

Imho this was a very unsmart and unreflected move - this is a critical functionality, FF is going to lose a serious amount of users if this stays that way. Please give the user the option to choose between "pages to be saved" and "days to be remembered" for history operation mode, with possibility to adjust the values. And what exactly is the rationale for making the value "places.history.expiration.transient_current_max_pages" readonly? The users who edit about:config are supposed to know what they're doing, so why not just let them?

To add insult to injury, there is now an addon for firefox to reenable this functionality that had been disabled by this change. Are you kidding me? You're slashing the size of the history for performance reasons, and then you're telling the users to install an addon if they want to have their usual history size, an addon which will have another impact on the performance of the browser?

Seriously - please revert this bad change, or fix it. Thanks.

My default search setting keeps reverting back to Yahoo after I reset my computer. Closing Firefox keeps the one I change it to but restarting the computer changes it.

I can't open the history sidebar. The "Show your History" option opens it's tab fine (the drop-down that says "Show History Sidebar", "Clear Recent History..." ect.). But, when clicking on the "Show History Sidebar", nothing comes up. I can use the "Show All History" option but the sidebar doesn't open for some reason.

Firefox 41.0.1, Windows 8.1. Since updating to version 38(?) "show all history" only shows the current session. I have since uodated to 41 with no improvement, Bookmarks have remained stable. I have tried:- Deleting Places.sqlite Re-installing Safe mode (no addons) Disablimg AVG and Defender Disablimg Wisecare and ASC

Changing Privacy options: Toggle Remember History/Use custom setting Toggle Private mode on/off Clear History toggled on/off

With Profile Manager created a new profile.

Checked the Owner and access control of all the files and folders in the profile, all full access and no read=only.

Installed "Places Maintenance" add-on and run it.

Can anyone suggest any other items to try, or is this a bug of FF running under Win 8,1?

Hi! There is a bug. YouTube History is not saved when i use Firefox as browser. So I deleted it and then reinstalled it, logged in to it and played videos from YouTube again. Then i checked again the history and saw that it was saving. Later without any changes in Firefox settings (including addons), the problem began starting again. I still don't understand why it is happening. The addons that i have installed are: Kaspersky Protection, Malwarebytes, uBlock Origin and Privacy Pass. This problem doesn't happen when i use Chrome Browser with same extensions.

I have several tabs that I have open on a regular basis that I use. I also have the option to clear browsing history when exiting Firefox checked. If Firefox crashes or I kill it with TaskManager, it will restore the tabs (and keeps history) but if I exit properly, it will not reopen the tabs even though I have the option 'Show your windows and tabs from last time' checked. There is not an option to open more than one home page. What if anything can I do?

I have asked this without result. When using firefox, I can do a search, go to a page, go to deeper pages, click the back button and forward button; but when I click the back button to the home page, the forward button disappears. I have done this by accident or design many times. When I back up to the home page, I have to start all over again, redo the search and it is extremely frustrating. This is NOT fixed by the "Restore Defaults." It seems that if I back up to my home page [Usually Google Search] then Firefox assumes that I will not want to go forward again. I do NOT want another ADD-ON for this. I merely want the forward button in all windows where there is a forward page. How can I get that? I hate to say it, but this happens enough that I have been using Chrome for searches and just general surfing. In my opinion, the forward button show be in ALL windows, grayed out if necessary, but there. But I can accept it disappearing when there is NO forward page. But not when there is a forward page. Note: this NEVER happens in Chrome [and others.] See pictures 1. Google search 2. Search for Yellowstone 3. Go to Yellowstone site 4. Click back button to Search for Yellowstone page. 5. Click back to Google page. Where is the forward button so that I can go forward to the Yellowstone search???

I have had this problem for a few months now and eventually just stopped using Firefox. I had tried the various suggested fixes to no avail. - rebooted - tried running in safe mode with no antivirus programs - renamed the places.sqlite file - I deleted Firefox, downloaded and installed it again with no success. I am concerned that not everything was removed on the Windows 10 uninstall process. - Have checked my Antivirus (Bit defender) logs and don't see any Firefox files locked/etc by Bitdefender

I would appreciate any suggestions that you might have. Regards Bill

Since I've updated to 61, I can't get the history to be active. (Bookmarks are fine). I made sure the settings were correct, I ran Refresh firefox; I ran Verify integrity and got this:

Task: checkIntegrity

- Unable to check database integrity > Task: invalidateCaches - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: checkCoherence - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: expire - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: vacuum - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: stats - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: _refreshUI - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task.

I've looked up numerous help sites, and they all refer to a place.sqlite file that I don't seem to have, and a profile folder that also does not exits (I'm assuming this is a 61 thing, in my older versions I had those files and folders.

Help! I need my history!
