Losing history

Discussion in 'Firefox' started by Steve Greenaway, May 20, 2006.

  1. I've been using the same profile with Firefox for 2 years now to
    keep my bookmarks, etc. Suddenly this week my browsing history and address
    bar entries have disappeared. My bookmarks and all my other settings seem
    fine. I thought that this might have been a one-time blip, but then it
    happened again a few days later. All my purple links have turned blue
    again!

    Any idea what's happening? FF1.5.0.3 on Win98SE

    Been happening to me with every version of FF (in Win XP SP2) going
    back several years, though I have no idea why. I just keep a backup
    of the whole profile folder so I can reinsert a populated history.dat
    file when it happens.
