Is it possible to have the whole history (of all the site that I have been visiting) since Firefox is installed?

I have the impression that it was possible to set how long the history of Firefox was; but now it looks like that you can maximum have a 3 months history. I do need the entire history. Please, how do you can get it?

Firefox 4+ versions do not have a time limit for the history.
Firefox determines automatically how many pages can be kept without affecting the performance.
You can see the current value via the read-only pref places.history.expiration.transient_current_max_pages on the about:config page.

You can reset no longer used browser.history_expire_days* prefs from older Firefox versions, if you still have them, to remove them on the next start.

Why is that pref read-only? How can it be changed or overridden?
