Make sure that you look in the correct location for the Firefox profile folder.

You can use this button to go to the currently used Firefox profile folder:

  • Help > Troubleshooting Information > Profile Director: Show Folder (Linux: Open Director; Mac: Show in Finder)

You can create a new profile as a test to check if your current profile is causing the problem.

See "Creating a profile":

If the new profile works then you can transfer files from a previously used profile to the new profile, but be cautious not to copy corrupted files to avoid carrying over the problem

do history, download history and saved seach text expire after time?

more options

Ah, so I know sometimes cookies can expire, however for the way you are describing, you can check to see how far back the history goes in the new profile by opening History > Show All history.

There is a limit to the cache space by default. You can take a look at the defaults in about:config and searching for cache.

Saved form data expires after 180 days and that includes search text.

did the stuff expire? what happened

more options

If you still have a copy of the folder with the history in it, if you change the default number of days to 690 (I think that is May 2011? may be more ) does the history show the old details?

However if they are not there, I am sorry they may have expired.

i did the transfer on 30th may 2013, what im trying to figure out is why my history on this computer only goes back to 30th may and not before.it seems like a succusesfull transfer as the profile is the same name and both the formhistory and places files are bigger than the one on my old computer also addons ect.what i want to know is why if i go to download history it only goes down to 30 may. does the history older than 6 months show all your history ever?also i remember after intitally lounching firefox on the new computer after the transfer the history of what i did on my old computer being there.stuff like searches and formdata text from old computer also are missing. passwords from old computer still here .what im thinking is whether the profile is progressing from the old computer.the files like formhistory are bigger so it seems like its progressing but where are all the saved text from the old computer then?

Hi nasaqww,

Sorry for the delay. I would have to assume that they expired. Note that the places.sqlite file is storing the bookmarks and the history, so you can try the SQLite add on and take a look at the Profile db file from the previous computer to make sure. SQlite Manger
