Recover Firefox web search history with history set to 0 days

Discussion in 'Firefox' started by Sudip Chakraborty, Nov 21, 2005.

  1. Hi,

    A friend of mine had a couple of websites open with Firefox (on Windows
    XP Home) which he
    had found after a lot of time and effort. I accidentally closed the
    browser windows and he could not recall which sites they were. He had
    Firefox history set at 0 days so there is no obvious way to find out
    which websites he was viewing.

    Can anyone suggest how I can recover this information? Are there
    Windows files that I can look into? Is there a way to do this in
    Firefox or Google Desktop? I downloaded Google Desktop AFTER the
    "accident" so I am not sure whether it will be able to find anything.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

  3. Thanks. I did that. However, it only shows 35 entries and since I have
    used it several times (>100) after that trying to find the website, its
    not within that.

    Are there any tools that can do some deeper investigation?

    Also, I have the Norton Internet Firewall installed. Any idea whether
    the firewall would track IP addresses that the browser accesses?
