Dear and respected Sir willjoe24421,

That's settled at last for now but i am experiencing difficulties with restoring my history to be the way it was ( All of the sites visited listed under history tab in they respected order and all) i managed to find a program called MZhistoryview which automatically detects and displays all of my deleted history but am unable to restore the file saved because FF says that html and xml are not supported format and when the file is saved in json the message i get is that FF is unable to process the backup file like shown in the attachment of this message so your kind input here on how to resolve this issue would be of great importance and value!

Thank you in advance for all of your kind assistance on this matter
