"Clear Recent History" window doesn't close automatically

more options

Hello,

after an internet session I'm using the "Clear Recent History" (STRG+SHIFT+Delete) function. Sometimes this window doesn't close automatically, when I'm click the OK-Button.

Is this a BUG?

Best regards

Thomas

I have add a screen shot. You can see that the buttons are greyed out after the klick on OK.

Other sites dealing with Firefox issues are mozillazine and reddit. I believe this is the only support facility offered by Mozilla. I never have that problem with the dialog you mention. Does it still happen if you start Firefox in "troubleshoot mode"? https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/diagnose-firefox-issues-using-troubleshoot-mode

Are you possibly using Private Browsing mode ?

Make sure you do not run Firefox in permanent Private Browsing mode (Always use Private Browsing mode; Never Remember History).

  • Options/Preferences -> Privacy & Security
    Firefox will: "Use custom settings for history"
  • remove checkmark: [ ] "Always use Private Browsing mode"

I have test it just now. The same.

@cor-el

No, I use the normal version. This problem is not every time, but very often. I use "Clear Recent History" very often.
