User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:44.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/44.0 Build ID: 20160209234513 Steps to reproduce: I (and I think many other users) would find it very useful if there was at least an optional option upon which enabling would mean that it would give you a full and proper history where if you go to a page, and then you go to that page again, two entries will be generated instead of the latest one overriding and replacing the earlier one. I understand that this is probably currently not the case due to the fact that the history file will get very big, but you don't need this to be enabled by default, but for there at least be an option to do this. This feature is available in modern browsers such as Google Chrome as well, so I think would be a valid feature for Firefox to at least optionally provide. I initially made this feature request here but thought I should also do so upstream: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/firefox/+bug/1493149 Actual results: Feature request Expected results: Feature request
Severity: normal → enhancement
Component: Untriaged → Bookmarks & History
The history backend works as you say, as well as the history sidebar if you set it By last visited... The other views are per-url for performance reasons.
Ideally you could also create your own views into history. There was once an add-on to do that, but it disappeared, so the only way would be to build a place: url manually and set it as url of a new bookmark... https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Tech/Places/Places_query_URIs
