I know this Q was asked recently but I cannot follow the disjointed and part missing thread. Would appreciate if someone could give me a complete reply. I know how to display hidden files and find my Application Support folder but profile files are all several years old. I have up to date Time Machine backups.

I am running Firefox 58.0.2 on OSX but inadvertently ran Firefox 34 and now my v58 has lost all history and bookmarks.

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.

I though that if I browsed in a private window that there would be no history record? This is the case with all other internet browsers that I use and it is automatic. I have never needed to go into settings. The Mozilla private browsing has remembered every site that I've been on and does not "forget" them when I log off. The history IS shown. What's more, I can NOT delete them with ctrl/shift/delete. This immensly irritating!!!!!! Please offer a solution.

Sorry, but to be honest with every update FF becomes worse and worse. It's sad because for me it is (on the edge already to say it was) the best browser.

After the latest update I have one more issue - when cleaning history manually (besides that that time Adobe Flash process opens even on a blank tab and I close it from Task manager) the CPU usage becomes extreme. I always clean my history manually, because I wanna chose what to be Forget That Site or only Delete Page (so to keep the cookies for certain pages). I do this everyday. CPU usage jumps up to 90% and when I close FF it stays in Task Manager forever with 60% CPU usage and can't close itself. I need to end FF process every time.

Because all recent issues I disabled many addons. When Googled issues with Adobe Flash (which also might mess with history cleaning) I read some blame AdBlock+ or/and NoScript that in their job of blocking ads and scripts they could cause FF slowness and high CPU usage.

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?

Since several months the amount of pages Firefox keeps in its history is drastically reduced. For whatever reason someone made the decision that FF was to be smarter than the user and to decide in his place how much history should be saved - for reason of performance - without giving the user any option to modify this and even without notifying the user about this critical change. There have been several threads about this issue, i.e. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1148703.

Imho this was a very unsmart and unreflected move - this is a critical functionality, FF is going to lose a serious amount of users if this stays that way. Please give the user the option to choose between "pages to be saved" and "days to be remembered" for history operation mode, with possibility to adjust the values. And what exactly is the rationale for making the value "places.history.expiration.transient_current_max_pages" readonly? The users who edit about:config are supposed to know what they're doing, so why not just let them?

To add insult to injury, there is now an addon for firefox to reenable this functionality that had been disabled by this change. Are you kidding me? You're slashing the size of the history for performance reasons, and then you're telling the users to install an addon if they want to have their usual history size, an addon which will have another impact on the performance of the browser?

Seriously - please revert this bad change, or fix it. Thanks.

I'm using the built-in dark theme of Firefox. In these days I changed the background color and the folder icons in the Bookmarks/History sidebar using this codes (I'm not absolutely an expert of codes, I've found them by searching the web and the old questions in our support forum.):

I didn't find how to change the "clock" icon color (white could be ok) in the History sidebar at the left of the "Today, Yesterday, etc". items. I attach a screenshot (it is Firefox in Italian, Cronologia = History). Do you have any suggestion to solve my problem?

Despite my repeated going into Options > Privacy and telling it to remember my history, Firefox continues to wipe my browsing history clean every single time I close out of the browser. It seems to remember my cookies and logins just fine, but for some reason it refuses to retain my browsing history - which is annoying, given that having access to it would by and large make browsing the net faster and make sure I remember some things. Any advice? Thank you in advance.

Under the <History> drop down there are normally the last 15 pages listed. However, these are "stuck" to pages visited several days/weeks previously.

If I use the full History recent pages are there and the Back/Forward function works.

I have tried the Places Maintenance extension - without success.

The problem occurred at the same time as the <Recently Closed Tabs> also stuck - that was rectified within about:config by changing browser.sessionstore.max_tabs_undo from 10 to 0 and back to 10

For the History problem, there is nothing obvious there and I do not want to try "random" changes.

Hello-

Firefox doesn't save my history with Quantum 64. This is is really frustrating. I had this issue prior to installing Quantum earlier this year. The minute Midnight strikes on my computer and start up FF it only reveals "Yesterday" history but nothing further back in date. I even tried changing the date back a few days for a moment and no previous history appeared. So there is nothing wrong with my clock/date.

Here's what I have done to try to correct /investigate this:

1. Restored FF Quantum. 2. Deleted all the Places.sqlite files and restarted FF to refresh them. 3. Checked Norton 360 to make sure History Clean Up is OFF. 4. Disabled Malwarebytes, IOBIT's Advance System Care 12 and similar programs for a couple of days. 5. I've had this issue before and even tried to reinstall FF and that didn't do anything.

6. Verify Integrity Results:
