My History is not showing up

I have done everything I could think of to fix the problem but nothing is working. Firefox is not remembering the history and the time is wrong if it is. I have tried updating to a new Firefox I have checked the option of remember my history but it's still not working.

Check the settings in Options > Privacy > Clear history... > Settings. If that is not the reason, maybe you are using Private Browsing mode? Otherwise, you might have a damaged places.sqlite file.

Check the date and time in the clock on your computer: (double) click the clock icon on the Windows Taskbar.

Re: My History is not showing up

The time is right on my computer but my history isn't updating. It hasn't updated at all today it's been about four days now. I am not browsing on private either so I don't know what to do.

Re: My History is not showing up

You can check for problems with the places.sqlite database file in the Firefox Profile Folder.


Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).

  • Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe mode start window or otherwise make changes.
