I'd like to know how to clear your search history i.e. search keywords in your "search" fields.

I do NOT mean clearing my BROWSING HISTORY, but certain/all searches on the "search" fields.

Some sites seems to save some of the words, some sites do no not. I don't know how it works, really.

I remember being able just to point the word off the list and hit "delete" and it was gone. Doesn't work anymore these days.

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've double-checked that no other program is deleting the history, and there are no scheduled tasks running that would do it. I have Firefox set to KEEP history. I DID have a crash at one point - could that have corrupted a user file?? How do I create that corrupted file to check if that is it?

Thank you!

I noticed that Firefox is deleting some of my older history and download entries that are about 5-6 months old. I've set my options to "Remember history" when I first created the profile. Used the SQLite Manager to check places.sqlite and I'm not anywhere close to places.history.expiration.transient_current_max_pages.

In comparisons with some backups, I've noticed that the missing records in places.sqlite's moz_places table had NULL values in favicon_id. They're getting auto-cleaned at some point, which is counter to what is expected with the "Remember history" setting. I don't think it's a max_pages issue because there are still moz_places table records much older than the lost entries.

Is there a preference I can set in about:config to avoid this?

I have narrowed this issue don to the 'Clear History When Firefox Closes' setting, I can do a refresh and only change the one setting and it will crash firefox when I go to shut down, it stops responding and I will have to force it closed or goto task manager to shut it down. Clearly something wrong with either the browser in a folder that stays when I delete firefox and reinstall, tried that too and it still happens.

The only other thing I could think of is if one of the anti-malware programs are doing it but I have 4 machines that this is not an issue and have the same setups in each, ith the exception of Microsoft Essentials. So I don't think that the other programs are the issue, I believe their is a folder that firefox uses that is not being removed, reset, what ever and firefox is the issue itself...

This is on a friends computer, I am trying to figure this out for him...

It has,

I updated Firefox last night right before bed, to version 65.0.1. I did not go to any websites after that. This morning, none of my browser history from before today, 2/14, exists any longer. I first noticed this when typing in a website I check daily, but I didn't have any autocomplete suggestions (normally I just type the first 2 letters and get a suggestion of the full site and I am able to just hit enter to go there). Just now, I checked my history folder to find a site I have not visited in the last few months, but with no history before yesterday, I am not sure how to proceed. I believe my bookmarks are intact (I do not typically use bookmarks, but there are a handful present, and I did not create them today, so I believe they are from before last night's update).

I do use an add-on to record my open tabs, and it someone does go back longer than this, so maybe I can find some of the sites I used to have. However, I could really use the history feature, I have some stuff last summer I would like consult ASAP. I can verify that I have not manually erased my history, at least not going back before something I viewed within a given hour (I don't go back and erase things from say, yesterday, last week, last month, last year, etc). Any thoughts?
