Is there a way to create something comparable to a bookmarklet (as described in /questions/956384) for browsing history and if so, how?

Also, would any of the history be lost (as mentioned by John99 in connection with /questions/956552)?

Thank you!

I first heard of this on TV news. I thought it said something about Facebook reading users' history - could be wrong on the facebook part. Then found this article about a university student that discovered this hole.

Is there any response about this from Mozilla yet?

http://arstechnica.com/security/2014/06/theyre-ba-ack-browser-sniffing-ghosts-return-to-haunt-chrome-ie-firefox/

"Now, a graduate student at Hasselt University in Belgium said he has confirmed that Chrome, IE, and Firefox users are once again susceptible to browsing-history sniffing. Borrowing from a browser-timing attack disclosed last year by fellow researcher Paul Stone, student Aäron Thijs was able to develop code that forced all three browsers to divulge browsing history contents. He said other browsers, including Safari and Opera, may also be vulnerable, although he has not tested them."

I delete websites I visit in "History" line by line, and I save the ones I find valuable for viewing in the future. Last week I visited a new website and checked out a few articles. A few days later I was deleting that day's line items I did not want to revisit. This particular website would not let me delete any of it's line items, no matter what. It was Just this website. Never have I encountered this problem. I had to go into Firefox and delete this particular website under "Forget this Site." Any answer as to why?

All Firefox History tools are either disabled or simply not working (ie. cannot open "See All History"), the back Button only works part of the time (and the forward button never shows), and I cannot select a Home Page (I always open to a white page). I've already tried Refreshing Firefox but all of the issues remain.

Search result lists don't change color when I click on them even though I checked "color change" - if I switch to IE, visited search results do change color

When I use any search engine to look for information, a long list of possibilities comes up. As I explore the most likely of these, the color of explored results doesn't change, so I soon lose track of which ones I have already tried and I end up wasting time re-trying the same sites! I have used FF Options/Content/Color to check change color of visited links, but it doesn't work in search engine result lists. IE doesn't have this problem so searching is much more efficient with IE. Please check into this glitch.

ALSO: The previous display for "Options" was far superior to the new one! It was easier to comprehend the whole schemata of an option, therefore much easier and faster to use! Now you have to stumble around and wonder where everything went, just seeing parts of things. I really HATE it big time. TIP: If something don't need fixin', don't fix it. Seems like tech guys just like to spend their days reconfiguring tech things for the heck of it, maybe to entertain themselves or impress their fellow tech buddies, BUT NEVER WITH PRIMARY FOCUS ON THE CONSUMER, most of whom use tech for mandatory work and not entertainment, and all of whom really don't have the time to keep learning every new twist. Tech isn't "fun" for us. Tech is a means to do a task that we want to get done as soon as possible, and unnecessary changes are just annoying stumbling blocks. Remember that, developers. Strive more for efficiency with a smooth continuum, and not for what might be "cool" to tech insiders.

Seems other people have written about this.

I'm using Firefox 39. Clicking 'Show All History' in the drop down menu only shows 'Older than 6 months' and 'Today'. Clearly this isn't 'All History'! Why doesn't it show anything between 'Today' and 'Older than 6 months'? Is this a bug?

Today I downloaded the add-on 'Places Maintenance' 1.3.1, and ran it. It has made no difference.

I hope you can help.

Firefox cannot remember links I have clicked to visit websites. Upon restart, all links I've previously clicked appear default blue as though that link had never been clicked, rather than the usual purple which indicates that that link has previously been clicked. Updating FF doesn't help. Refreshing FF doesn't help. All the very same links display normally in Chrome (Chrome remembers all links I have visited). For anti-tracking I have Blur and Ghostery.
