Although I've checked the session restore box in Options, I had a problem. With different windows open, I closed the first one (with the tabs I wanted restored), worked with the second window, then shut down FF. When I went back to FF it would only restore the second window. I have an online backup service so I can retrieve AppData from a few days ago -- how do I use that to restore the session from the first window? thanks

Is there a way to create something comparable to a bookmarklet (as described in /questions/956384) for browsing history and if so, how?

Also, would any of the history be lost (as mentioned by John99 in connection with /questions/956552)?

Thank you!

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.

My places.sqlite file has places.sqlite.corrupt just under it in my second profile's folder. I tried renaming the corrupt file as just places.sqlite (calling the first places.sqlite something else) and restarting as suggested but the history still won't show up, and when I check the folder, places.sqlite is once again places.sqlite.corrupt (with a places.sqlite file just above it.)

Is there a way to somehow get Quantum to read my old history?

How to stop history list view from resetting to top?

When opening a page from history list sorted by last visited, the opened page (naturally) jumps to top of the list. But so does the list selection, as it stays on the item, and probably because of this, the list view gets reset to top. This is annoying if you want to open more than one page, and must scroll several screenfuls down to reach them.

None of the other sorting methods help either. For example, sort by date just groups the list by date, and sorts alphabetically (!) inside each day. The only chronological sorting method is by last visited, and the position where interesting pages are, is lost every time one is opened.

Is there a way to stop the history view from resetting? It does not reset when opening a bookmark, following links on webpages or using direct URLs.

My Firefox only saves the history for a few days and I don't know why. That are about 300 sites. Probably the longest it saves are the last 7 days. When I go to about:config and type "places.history.expiration.transient_current_max_pages" it gives me a value about 60000. So why won't Firefox save up to 60000 sites of history then? I am currently on Firefox ESR.

Thanks for any help.
