Certain views only show up after a given date it. Current views (12/5/2013): Today Yesterday November ..etc

If I change my computer clock to be later in the month the views change. Current views (12/7/2013): Today Yesterday Last 7 days November ...etc

At the *very* least "This Month" should always be an option! I could not browse 3 days of history until changing my clock.

Try Firefox in safe mode to see if there is still a problem. If the problem is still there, you may need to reset Firefox.


Try Firefox Safe Mode to see if the problem goes away. Safe Mode is a troubleshooting mode, which disables most add-ons.

(If you're not using it, switch to the Default theme.)

  • On Windows you can open Firefox 4.0+ in Safe Mode by holding the Shift key when you open the Firefox desktop or Start menu shortcut.
  • On Mac you can open Firefox 4.0+ in Safe Mode by holding the option key while starting Firefox.
  • On Linux you can open Firefox 4.0+ in Safe Mode by quitting Firefox and then going to your Terminal and running: firefox -safe-mode (you may need to specify the Firefox installation path e.g. /usr/lib/firefox)
  • Or open the Help menu and click on the Restart with Add-ons Disabled... menu item while Firefox is running.


Once you get the pop-up, just select "'Start in Safe Mode" Safe Mode Fx 15 - Win

If the issue is not present in Firefox Safe Mode, your problem is probably caused by an extension, and you need to figure out which one. Please follow the Troubleshoot extensions, themes and hardware acceleration issues to solve common Firefox problems article for that.

To exit the Firefox Safe Mode, just close Firefox and wait a few seconds before opening Firefox for normal use again.

When you figure out what's causing your issues, please let us know. It might help other users who have the same problem.

Thank you.

You do not see these entries if there isn't any history available or kept for that time frame.
This history either gets deleted, either in Firefox ("Clear history when Firefox closes") or by internal/external cleanup software or if the the places.sqlite file is corrupted.

You can check for problems with the places.sqlite database file in the Firefox profile folder.

Sorry if I wasn't very clear in my original posting, but there *is* history for the days. It just is not viewable until those folders become accessible by a change of the date. I will check into the recommendations posted so far though.
