Latest versions have made obsolete the possibility to keep history based on user-defined period of time.

I actually would like to have that back and keep history indefinitely or have the possibility to archive it. How can this be done?

It crashed today when I started it, then I repeatedly clicked somewhere on the crashed screen so Windows force close it. It force closed it. But when it stated , ALL my history is gone !!!!! Although saved passwords are ok. Now EVERY TIME I start Firefox, it does seem to reset itself and clears history This problem appeared after I updated to 44 recently. 1- How can I fix this problem? 2- How can I retrieve my history?

Any help is deeply appreciated

I'm on a Macbook Pro using High Sierra OS 10.13.4. Firefox Quantum is version 62.0. I've tried going to the menu and clicking history, clear recent history, everything, clear now. I've also tried going to the menu and clicking show history and using the delete command. Nothing works. Do I need to delete Firefox to delete my history?

I selectively delete data on sites by doing Show All History, finding a row for the site I want to remove, and then doing Right Click -> "Forget About This Site". I do this rather than globally forget all data because there are a few site logins I want to retain.

I just did this with every row in the History - This Month tab. It's now empty.

However, when I type a single letter (e.g. "a") into the search box a huge list of URLs appears, many of them from this month. They include a number of sites, like my on-line banking, that I previously believed I had erased all trace of.

1) Why are these URLs not shown in my history except when a search term is entered?

2) Why does "Forget About This Site" not clear EVERYTHING for the site in question?

For info, I'm running FF 61.01.1 for Linux Mint.

Hi! There is a bug. YouTube History is not saved when i use Firefox as browser. So I deleted it and then reinstalled it, logged in to it and played videos from YouTube again. Then i checked again the history and saw that it was saving. Later without any changes in Firefox settings (including addons), the problem began starting again. I still don't understand why it is happening. The addons that i have installed are: Kaspersky Protection, Malwarebytes, uBlock Origin and Privacy Pass. This problem doesn't happen when i use Chrome Browser with same extensions.

Unable to delete history

None of the options to delete history seem to work. Clear Recent History, rightclick Delete or Forget Site from History window, all have no effect.

I have several tabs that I have open on a regular basis that I use. I also have the option to clear browsing history when exiting Firefox checked. If Firefox crashes or I kill it with TaskManager, it will restore the tabs (and keeps history) but if I exit properly, it will not reopen the tabs even though I have the option 'Show your windows and tabs from last time' checked. There is not an option to open more than one home page. What if anything can I do?

I updated Firefox last night right before bed, to version 65.0.1. I did not go to any websites after that. This morning, none of my browser history from before today, 2/14, exists any longer. I first noticed this when typing in a website I check daily, but I didn't have any autocomplete suggestions (normally I just type the first 2 letters and get a suggestion of the full site and I am able to just hit enter to go there). Just now, I checked my history folder to find a site I have not visited in the last few months, but with no history before yesterday, I am not sure how to proceed. I believe my bookmarks are intact (I do not typically use bookmarks, but there are a handful present, and I did not create them today, so I believe they are from before last night's update).

I do use an add-on to record my open tabs, and it someone does go back longer than this, so maybe I can find some of the sites I used to have. However, I could really use the history feature, I have some stuff last summer I would like consult ASAP. I can verify that I have not manually erased my history, at least not going back before something I viewed within a given hour (I don't go back and erase things from say, yesterday, last week, last month, last year, etc). Any thoughts?

I'd like to know how to clear your search history i.e. search keywords in your "search" fields.

I do NOT mean clearing my BROWSING HISTORY, but certain/all searches on the "search" fields.

Some sites seems to save some of the words, some sites do no not. I don't know how it works, really.

I remember being able just to point the word off the list and hit "delete" and it was gone. Doesn't work anymore these days.

I have asked this without result. When using firefox, I can do a search, go to a page, go to deeper pages, click the back button and forward button; but when I click the back button to the home page, the forward button disappears. I have done this by accident or design many times. When I back up to the home page, I have to start all over again, redo the search and it is extremely frustrating. This is NOT fixed by the "Restore Defaults." It seems that if I back up to my home page [Usually Google Search] then Firefox assumes that I will not want to go forward again. I do NOT want another ADD-ON for this. I merely want the forward button in all windows where there is a forward page. How can I get that? I hate to say it, but this happens enough that I have been using Chrome for searches and just general surfing. In my opinion, the forward button show be in ALL windows, grayed out if necessary, but there. But I can accept it disappearing when there is NO forward page. But not when there is a forward page. Note: this NEVER happens in Chrome [and others.] See pictures 1. Google search 2. Search for Yellowstone 3. Go to Yellowstone site 4. Click back button to Search for Yellowstone page. 5. Click back to Google page. Where is the forward button so that I can go forward to the Yellowstone search???

I have had this problem for a few months now and eventually just stopped using Firefox. I had tried the various suggested fixes to no avail. - rebooted - tried running in safe mode with no antivirus programs - renamed the places.sqlite file - I deleted Firefox, downloaded and installed it again with no success. I am concerned that not everything was removed on the Windows 10 uninstall process. - Have checked my Antivirus (Bit defender) logs and don't see any Firefox files locked/etc by Bitdefender

I would appreciate any suggestions that you might have. Regards Bill

I woke my laptop up from sleep. I am using Microsoft 10 64 bit. Firefox auto updated, my computer restarted, I lost all of my tabs. A whole pile of them. I've always been able to restore session, or restore previously closed windows, etc, but all of those options are greyed out. I went through and cherry picked a few of the web pages I recognized out of my history, but many of my tabs have stayed open for quite some time and are not in that history. How do I recover my tabs?
