(First off; I have not changed any settings related to history in firefox, nor is firefox configured to delete history, nor am I in private mode) For all purposes, all the history is set to be remembered and saved. (I am also the sole user of this computer)

Started having this problem this last weekend (Around June the 6th 2020) At first I didn't notice but after a while large portions (hours worth) of my history were missing. The problem seems may have gotten worse , more and more seems to vanish. To be specific seemingly randomized pages fail to register in the history.

I have attempted verifying the integrity of places.sqlite (is this even history?) as was mentioned on another similar support report (about history not recording everything) but as soon as I pressed verify the log showed the following -

> Task: checkIntegrity - Unable to check places.sqlite integrity: Error: Error(s) encountered during statement execution: > Task: invalidateCaches - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: checkCoherence - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: expire - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: originFrecencyStats - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: vacuum - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: stats - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: _refreshUI - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task.

Can I repair my current places.sqlite (Bookmarks / History?) ? Do I have to delete it/other places.sqlite files so firefox can regenerate?

I have a lot of bookmarks, is there such a thing as too many?

Please advise how to determine any changes that may have been made to my Firefox browser on a specific day by a third party website. I'm not sure, but am suspicious.

I would hope there is a way to identify any changes or updates by date.

Thank you.

I have checked all settings and even uninstall ad-ons, it first started happened on my work computer. Thought it was the computer hardware or something. But now I got a laptop and it happened as well. I don't know what's causing the issue or how to fix it.

It's very frustrating because I can't really read well what it says now. I have attached a screenshot of the problem and it happens on almost every website

Can someone explain to me why I sometimes need to verify a countless number of images before I can use the Firefox browser. I did not have to do that when using Google Chrome. I'm using NordVPN. I have the NordVPN addon installed.

Is that the reason?

I am willing to consider paying for Better Web with Scroll, but while Firefox says that it has partnered with "dozens" of organizations, it does not list most of them. I do not use any of the services it does list, so my subscription would not go to any organizations at all if this is a comprehensive list. Is there any list of all the organizations it has partnered with? Will this list be available on an ongoing basis to ensure transparency? Will organizations be able to sign up freely?

This is really just a paid version of Brave, and Better Web would need to demonstrate that it has distinct advantages over that browser to make it truly worthwhile. So far, they have not done a great job of demonstrating that they have those advantages. I am ready to be convinced, because I trust and respect Mozilla, but have not been yet.
