How do I stop my child from erasing the "history" on mozilla? Is there a way to password protect it so only I can access it?

My teenager erased the history each time he goes on so that I don't see where he was (so he doesn't get in trouble for going to youtube when he should be doing homework). I'd like to be able to password protect the history so he can no longer erase it. Can you please advise me.

One option is to use the Public Fox add-on to password protect parts of Firefox including the option to clear recent history - https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/public-fox/

The downside of using an add-on is that it is quite easy to bypass. An alternative approach is to use a third party parental control application that stores its own log of sites that are visited. If the Firefox list is cleared, the sites will still be shown in the other application. One such application is the free K9 web protection - http://www.k9webprotection.com/
