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 can't imagine my life using another browser, but I'm beginning to think Firefox wants me to do so. I don't know what to do anymore, I've tried everything. Every now and then I was using Firefox and it demanded me to update so it would start again, and, when it did, it came back without the "restore previous session" option. That was really nervewracking, but at least I had the Session Manager app, so I didn't give much of a damn. But now they both stopped working. Why is this happening? This is a serious pain in the arse, I've been dealing with it for some time, but now I can't take it anymore. Enough is enough.

My places.sqlite file has places.sqlite.corrupt just under it in my second profile's folder. I tried renaming the corrupt file as just places.sqlite (calling the first places.sqlite something else) and restarting as suggested but the history still won't show up, and when I check the folder, places.sqlite is once again places.sqlite.corrupt (with a places.sqlite file just above it.)

Is there a way to somehow get Quantum to read my old history?

When opening a page from history list sorted by last visited, the opened page (naturally) jumps to top of the list. But so does the list selection, as it stays on the item, and probably because of this, the list view gets reset to top. This is annoying if you want to open more than one page, and must scroll several screenfuls down to reach them.

None of the other sorting methods help either. For example, sort by date just groups the list by date, and sorts alphabetically (!) inside each day. The only chronological sorting method is by last visited, and the position where interesting pages are, is lost every time one is opened.

Is there a way to stop the history view from resetting? It does not reset when opening a bookmark, following links on webpages or using direct URLs.

My Firefox only saves the history for a few days and I don't know why. That are about 300 sites. Probably the longest it saves are the last 7 days. When I go to about:config and type "places.history.expiration.transient_current_max_pages" it gives me a value about 60000. So why won't Firefox save up to 60000 sites of history then? I am currently on Firefox ESR.

Thanks for any help.

Sometimes I need to really dig deeö in the history to find what I had forgotten I had, and ehen I find it, I nne that double click to open a tab just like I open every other tab - in a new one. Instead, "history" opens it up in the current ues one.

When I type in the address bar, I am used to

  • seeing my history show up as I type; and
  • pressing the Enter or Return key to navigate to the thing I typed.

Now the history doesn't show as I type, and Enter/return has no effect... Until I type one of the following things: backspace, space, / or # (there may be more). Then the history shows up and Enter works again!!

If I type any other character after any of those, then the history disappears and Enter stops working again.

What gives? Is this a bug? Or a setting somewhere?

It's super annoying.

Never seen this before. IT just upgraded my machine to Windows 10, removed my previous Firefox installation, and force-installed the ESR version of Firefox (60.5.2esr (32-bit)).

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.
