how can I restore "Clear recent History" tab in Tools menu

When I click on "Tools," even thought there is a history, the "Clear Recent History" tab is not highlighted - so I cannot clear the history.

Make sure that you do not run Firefox in permanent Private Browsing mode.

  • You enter Private Browsing mode if you select: Firefox > Preferences > Privacy > History: Firefox will: "Never Remember History"
  • To see all History and Cookie settings, choose: Firefox > Preferences > Privacy, choose the setting Firefox will: Use custom settings for history
  • Deselect: [ ] "Permanent Private Browsing mode"
