Can't Access Firefox Browsing History
I have my browser set up to delete my browsing settings after completely shutting down Firefox. However, during a browsing session, my visited sites are supposed to be stored as per usual. This has been completely non-functional for the past month or so and I've tried several fixes to no avail.
Problem: ~Can't view current, active browsing history
Attempted Solutions: ~Upgrade Firefox ~Downgrade Firefox ~Uninstall & Re-Install ~Complete System Updates ~Restart Computer ~Turn Off/Turn On Computer ~Restore Default Settings to History Controls ~Wail in Agony to the Wind

Make sure you do not run Firefox in permanent Private Browsing mode (Always use Private Browsing mode; Never Remember History).
- Options/Preferences -> Privacy & Security -> Firefox will: "Use custom settings for history"
- remove checkmark: [ ] "Always use Private Browsing mode"
You can check for problems with the places.sqlite database (bookmarks and history) in the Firefox profile folder.
- use "Verify Integrity" on the "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page
