I'm trying to find a certain site that i visited a few days ago because it had the name of a song on it that I'm looking for. I know I've found places I've visited today, yesterday, in the past week, month, year, etc. in the past... but I can't remember how to get there. Can someone please send detailed steps with screenshots so I know where to look? Thanks, Karen

Hi guys! My firefox does not remember any history at all. Of course the privacy settings say: " remember history". Everything else (bookmarks and such work fine. I have done a "reset firefox" twice; no change. There is an article from someone with similar problems, but vital chunks of info are missing, so I can not reproduce what exactly the problem was and how it was solved. Any suggestions anyone?? Cheers Stefan ( should add: windows 7, latest firefox version...)

I know this Q was asked recently but I cannot follow the disjointed and part missing thread. Would appreciate if someone could give me a complete reply. I know how to display hidden files and find my Application Support folder but profile files are all several years old. I have up to date Time Machine backups.

I am running Firefox 58.0.2 on OSX but inadvertently ran Firefox 34 and now my v58 has lost all history and bookmarks.

Since several months the amount of pages Firefox keeps in its history is drastically reduced. For whatever reason someone made the decision that FF was to be smarter than the user and to decide in his place how much history should be saved - for reason of performance - without giving the user any option to modify this and even without notifying the user about this critical change. There have been several threads about this issue, i.e. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1148703.

Imho this was a very unsmart and unreflected move - this is a critical functionality, FF is going to lose a serious amount of users if this stays that way. Please give the user the option to choose between "pages to be saved" and "days to be remembered" for history operation mode, with possibility to adjust the values. And what exactly is the rationale for making the value "places.history.expiration.transient_current_max_pages" readonly? The users who edit about:config are supposed to know what they're doing, so why not just let them?

To add insult to injury, there is now an addon for firefox to reenable this functionality that had been disabled by this change. Are you kidding me? You're slashing the size of the history for performance reasons, and then you're telling the users to install an addon if they want to have their usual history size, an addon which will have another impact on the performance of the browser?

Seriously - please revert this bad change, or fix it. Thanks.

Sorry, but to be honest with every update FF becomes worse and worse. It's sad because for me it is (on the edge already to say it was) the best browser.

After the latest update I have one more issue - when cleaning history manually (besides that that time Adobe Flash process opens even on a blank tab and I close it from Task manager) the CPU usage becomes extreme. I always clean my history manually, because I wanna chose what to be Forget That Site or only Delete Page (so to keep the cookies for certain pages). I do this everyday. CPU usage jumps up to 90% and when I close FF it stays in Task Manager forever with 60% CPU usage and can't close itself. I need to end FF process every time.

Because all recent issues I disabled many addons. When Googled issues with Adobe Flash (which also might mess with history cleaning) I read some blame AdBlock+ or/and NoScript that in their job of blocking ads and scripts they could cause FF slowness and high CPU usage.

Despite my repeated going into Options > Privacy and telling it to remember my history, Firefox continues to wipe my browsing history clean every single time I close out of the browser. It seems to remember my cookies and logins just fine, but for some reason it refuses to retain my browsing history - which is annoying, given that having access to it would by and large make browsing the net faster and make sure I remember some things. Any advice? Thank you in advance.

I have asked this without result. When using firefox, I can do a search, go to a page, go to deeper pages, click the back button and forward button; but when I click the back button to the home page, the forward button disappears. I have done this by accident or design many times. When I back up to the home page, I have to start all over again, redo the search and it is extremely frustrating. This is NOT fixed by the "Restore Defaults." It seems that if I back up to my home page [Usually Google Search] then Firefox assumes that I will not want to go forward again. I do NOT want another ADD-ON for this. I merely want the forward button in all windows where there is a forward page. How can I get that? I hate to say it, but this happens enough that I have been using Chrome for searches and just general surfing. In my opinion, the forward button show be in ALL windows, grayed out if necessary, but there. But I can accept it disappearing when there is NO forward page. But not when there is a forward page. Note: this NEVER happens in Chrome [and others.] See pictures 1. Google search 2. Search for Yellowstone 3. Go to Yellowstone site 4. Click back button to Search for Yellowstone page. 5. Click back to Google page. Where is the forward button so that I can go forward to the Yellowstone search???

Hi! There is a bug. YouTube History is not saved when i use Firefox as browser. So I deleted it and then reinstalled it, logged in to it and played videos from YouTube again. Then i checked again the history and saw that it was saving. Later without any changes in Firefox settings (including addons), the problem began starting again. I still don't understand why it is happening. The addons that i have installed are: Kaspersky Protection, Malwarebytes, uBlock Origin and Privacy Pass. This problem doesn't happen when i use Chrome Browser with same extensions.

I though that if I browsed in a private window that there would be no history record? This is the case with all other internet browsers that I use and it is automatic. I have never needed to go into settings. The Mozilla private browsing has remembered every site that I've been on and does not "forget" them when I log off. The history IS shown. What's more, I can NOT delete them with ctrl/shift/delete. This immensly irritating!!!!!! Please offer a solution.

Under the <History> drop down there are normally the last 15 pages listed. However, these are "stuck" to pages visited several days/weeks previously.

If I use the full History recent pages are there and the Back/Forward function works.

I have tried the Places Maintenance extension - without success.

The problem occurred at the same time as the <Recently Closed Tabs> also stuck - that was rectified within about:config by changing browser.sessionstore.max_tabs_undo from 10 to 0 and back to 10

For the History problem, there is nothing obvious there and I do not want to try "random" changes.

My default search setting keeps reverting back to Yahoo after I reset my computer. Closing Firefox keeps the one I change it to but restarting the computer changes it.

I can't open the history sidebar. The "Show your History" option opens it's tab fine (the drop-down that says "Show History Sidebar", "Clear Recent History..." ect.). But, when clicking on the "Show History Sidebar", nothing comes up. I can use the "Show All History" option but the sidebar doesn't open for some reason.

I'm using the built-in dark theme of Firefox. In these days I changed the background color and the folder icons in the Bookmarks/History sidebar using this codes (I'm not absolutely an expert of codes, I've found them by searching the web and the old questions in our support forum.):

/* Sidebar color change */
#viewButton, #sidebar-header, #sidebar-box, #sidebar, .sidebar-placesTree{

#PlacesToolbarItems toolbarbutton[container="true"] .toolbarbutton-icon,
#PlacesToolbarItems menu[container="true"] .menu-iconic-left,
#BMB_bookmarksPopup menu[container="true"] .menu-iconic-icon,

I didn't find how to change the "clock" icon color (white could be ok) in the History sidebar at the left of the "Today, Yesterday, etc". items. I attach a screenshot (it is Firefox in Italian, Cronologia = History). Do you have any suggestion to solve my problem?
