Look on your desktop. Do you see a folder called; Old Firefox?

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web Link} by holding down the <Shift>
(Mac=Options)
key, and then starting Firefox. A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh).

Is the problem still there?

Places Maintenance {web link} Allows to run Maintenance tasks on the database that drives Places, the bookmarks and history module behind Firefox.

Open the Add-ons Manager. Locate the add-on and press the Options button. Then follow the directions.


In the event that the passwords information is lost, you should record all information in a separate text file somewhere else on your hard drive, or written down. You can easily copy and paste if you need to do so. If you are concerned about someone else looking at that file, you can compress it using a password.

If you lose the history and you didn't delete the history yourself then there might have been a problem with the places.sqlite database that stores bookmarks and history. For the bookmarks there are backups that Firefox uses to restore the bookmark automatically, but there are no backups for the history.

You would need to have a backup of places.sqlite (possibly from the Time Machine) to recover the lost history.
