OS: Windows 10 (Japanese) (updated) Firefox version 84.02 (64-bit) (updated) Drivers (updated)

I got an email from a reputed PDF OCR software and scanner company as usual for winter sale. I decided to buy the software and click the BUY link in the email. On the website I entered required information and when clicked the process button unexpectedly on the next page I was supposed to fill in my Credit card password which was strange and I left the website before leaving did left the chat message "why do you need password".

After a while I checked the Firefox browser's history and surprisingly there wasn't any history of that website. So, question is when I was not using Private browsing then why there wasn't web history? Do you think it is technically possible?

Any guidance will be appreciated. Thank you.

There should be some history for that time window if you look chronologically. Unfortunately, Firefox only shows the latest visit to a site so if you went back to the URLs, you won't see the site listed at the earlier time.

There is a program that can read out Firefox history request by request, it's very detailed, so you can get a more complete picture of that time period.

jscher2000, thank you for the reply I appreciate that. I used MZCacheView and found some entries. I looked at the properties of the entries but I do not know all that stuff is. There are total 9946 entries.
