My Firefox 72.0.2 doesn't save history at all

No matter what I try based on internet searches, and on this forum, I can't get my browser to save any history. After I close the closer at end of day, it erases everything. I even created a new profile.... no good. Uninstalled and re-installed.... no good. Places integrity checker says the database is sane. I checked my system care software and disabled any privacy sweeps months ago. My older (a few years back) firefox used to save everything....

I notice you have IObit Surfing Protection & Ads Removal installed. Check out its settings.

It was disabled.... and I actually removed it completely this morning.

I also removed the cookie manager....

A couple years ago, a user reported that history was trimmed around midnight daily. We didn't solve it, but if you want to see another half-dozen investigative steps we suggested, you can review the thread here:

Anyway, I decided to switch to a different browser. This problem can't be fixed on my end, sorry to say. Thanks for all the input....

All of a sudden, my firefox browser is not saving history on my macbook. I haven't recently changed any settings or done any updates. I am using Firefox 73.0. And I am running mac on mohave 10.14.6

I went into settings and of firefox into privacy and history, and everything looks normal. With the right boxes still ticked off/on.

There is no history being saved in my history, when I click on the toolbar. Not even in real time as I visit different sites.

Nor is there any history when I go to the library history. It's blank.

When I close firefox, and re-open it, it remains blank.

Bookmarks seem to be fine.

Hi KRBKRB, did you try the Places database "Verify Integrity" test mentioned earlier in this thread?

Open Firefox's Troubleshooting Information page using any of these methods:

  • (menu bar) Help > Troubleshooting Information
  • "3-bar" menu button > "?" Help > Troubleshooting Information
  • type or paste about:support in the address bar and press Enter/Return

Near the bottom, there is a section titled Places Database -- that's the file which stores history and bookmarks. Click the button labeled Verify Integrity. There may be a 10-15 second delay before results appear.

If all is well, the report that appears below the button should start with:

> Task: checkIntegrity
+ The places.sqlite database is sane
+ The favicons.sqlite database is sane

Does yours say that, or something else? You can select and copy the report, and then paste it into a reply for review and comment.

However, out of consideration for musicweb1, please start a new thread for your results. You can use the following link to start a new question. Keep scrolling down past suggestion links to continue with the form:
