Help please I seemed to LOST my HISTORY can someone help

Hello i need some help ...I dont know, but I just got my computer back and running last month in January cuz I had a broken screen.. I noticed a few days ago that my history from Firefox all of the only from January is there but when I did put it back on I had everything from the time when my friend deleted it and i had it from 2010? i think or before and when I double check it like a few weeks ago everything was fine? I have a program Advanced systemcare free just incase if that is the problem. i have saved the restore center files but the last one was 1 11 12? If anyone can really help me super fast so i can be happier again lol Smiley Happy cuz i was gonna actually look at my old stuff to put it in notepad just incase something like this ever happens and it did lol but maybe you guys and girls can help me so please u can message me here or PM me ^^ It is to get my old history back before january when i first had my computer b4 my friends deleted some history or after that happened if u can help me get my history when i first got my computer when i had internet that would be awesome please help ^^

Do you have a backup of places.sqlite in the Firefox Profile Folder?

If not then you can't restore lost history.

it shows on the thing open troubleshooting where it has containing folder that i have this many i think ? places.last_vacuum 1326330489 is that right? What is a url classifier cuz that had like 23.9 mb worth of stuff? lmao.. My place.sqlite has 18.1 mb in it? WOULD IT HAVE ALL of my history since i had firefox? I have a few store sessions but thats bc i havent looked at them alll lol Smiley Happy i hope thats not the problem that i cant see all my history before january ..

Leave all files in the Firefox Profile Folder as they are unless there is a problem that requires to start with a fresh copy of a file and in such a case you can (re)move a file to make Firefox create a new copy.

The urlclassifier3.sqlite file is the phishing protection database.


There aren't any backups of Firefox files apart from the JSON bookmarks backups in the bookmarkbackups folder, so if you haven't created any yourself then you can't restore lost history.

You can remove the sessionstore-##.js (JScript script files) with a number in the name.

The presence of such temp files with a number indicates that Firefox wasn't able to rename the temporary sessionstore file to sessionstore.js, probably because security software had a lock (handle) on that file.
