Hi, Firefox was uninstalled on my computer, is there anyway to access the internet history when this program was in use? Is it anywhere on my hard drive? If I reinstall it, would the history be available? Thanks so much for your help.

The internet history, along with bookmarks, is stored in a file called places.sqlite inside the profile folder.

When you uninstall Firefox there is an option to "Remove my Firefox personal data", if that option was selected then the profile folder would have been deleted. If that option was not selected, the profile folder should be intact, and if you re-install Firefox your settings and history will still be there.
