Hi all,

My history no longer shows in my address bar. I have tried several fixes I found around the internet, such as starting and safe mode and checking the settings on the privacy tab. The problem persisted in safe mode and after manually disabling all my addons and removing my themes. I tried uninstalling and downloading Firefox again. No effect. When the problem began, the location bar setting under preferences was set to show history and bookmarks. I tried setting it to only history, and it only showed bookmarks I had recently viewed. I tried setting it back to history and bookmarks and it showed only bookmarks again. I would imagine that this means that the location bar is not properly reading from the folder that contains my history, but I don't have the computer know-how to confirm, let alone fix, this problem. I am rung the most recent version of Firefox on a mac.

Thanks for your help, John

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

Hello,

You can check for problems with the places.sqlite database file in the Firefox profile folder.

Either enter about:support in your address bar, or go to:

  • Help (or New Fx Menu > Help-29 ) > Troubleshooting Information

Beside Profile Folder, click the "Show Folder" button to access the location of the file. Make sure it isn't read only. You can also install the Places Maintenance extension to run maintenance on the file. Please read the following articles first as they provide helpful hints and instructions that may be relevant to you:
