First and most important I want to thank FredMcD and cor-el. Your input got me "going" again.

E-mail is the more important issue at this point. I use Gmail and have for years, and right now I have to go through their awkward login procedure every time I start Firefox. In Safari, which I want to leave behind, I just click on mail and I'm in. Can I setup this situation in Firefox?

My history only shows "Today", "Yesterday", "Last 7 days". I don't want to show a ton of history, but I would like to show 14 days. In some of the help articles I see far more history than that. Is there any way I can push history to 14 days?

Help would be greatly appreciated as I'm 78 and weak on technology, chubbles

Are you talking about the browser history or your e-mails?

You may be in Private Browsing mode or told Firefox not to remember.

Type about:preferences#privacy<enter> in the address box. The button next to History, select Use Custom Settings.

Turn off Always Use Private Browsing Mode Turn on Remember My Browsing And Download History At the bottom of the page, turn on Clear History When Firefox Closes. At the far right, press the Settings button. Turn on ONLY Cache and Form And Search History leaving the others off.


Macs: Make sure you install Firefox properly and that you do not run Firefox from within the DMG (Disk Images) file. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-download-and-install-firefox-mac

You my have cleanup software running in Windows that is scheduled to run once a week if you only keep history for one, so you can check what task are running at the time you notice you lose history. Firefox doesn't come with such a feature, there is only "Clear history when Firefox closes".
