can you reverse the "forget about a site" if you accidentally press it?

Hi I was looking in history for something and wanted to delete it out which I did - accidentally highlighting the site below (facebook) which I didn't want firefox to "forget" about can I change this? or will everything I view on facebook from now onwards be forgotten about in history if I wanted to go back to something?

Using "Forget About This Site" will remove everything like bookmarks, cookies, passwords, cache, history, and exceptions from that domain, so be cautious and if you have a password or other data from that domain that you do not want to lose then make a note of those passwords and bookmarks.
You can't recover from that "forget" unless you have a backup of the affected files.
It doesn't have any lasting effect, so if you revisit such a 'forgotten' website then data from that website will be saved once again.
