My history disappear every time I close Firefox

I can't imagine my life using another browser, but I'm beginning to think Firefox wants me to do so. I don't know what to do anymore, I've tried everything. Every now and then I was using Firefox and it demanded me to update so it would start again, and, when it did, it came back without the "restore previous session" option. That was really nervewracking, but at least I had the Session Manager app, so I didn't give much of a damn. But now they both stopped working. Why is this happening? This is a serious pain in the arse, I've been dealing with it for some time, but now I can't take it anymore. Enough is enough.

  • 3) Many disk cleaners and anti-virus type programs can remove data from browsers. Open their settings and have them leave the browsers alone.
  • 4) Mal-ware.

Having more than one version of a program may cause issues. You must remove the older programs. Then get the current full installer.

Flash: Grab the uninstaller from here: Uninstall Flash Player | Windows Uninstall Flash Player | Mac

Then reinstall the latest version.

Note: Windows users should download the active_x for Internet Explorer. and the plugin for Plugin-based browsers (like Firefox).

Note: Windows 8 and Windows 10 have built-in flash players and Adobe will cause a conflict. Install the plugin only. Not the active_x.
