Delete history older than x
(Toolkit :: Data Sanitization, enhancement, P5)
(Reporter: wojtek, Unassigned)
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.15; rv:79.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/79.0
Steps to reproduce:
Searched the internet for a long time. Also tried going to History -> "older than 6 months" -> Delete which hung the browser and nothing got deleted (about 30k items)
Nothing... still have complete history
I should be able to:
- easily remove history older than ("clean history" option in firefox)
- be able to configure Firefox to store items only of maximum age (history/cookies) - why on earth I would need history older than, let's say, 6 months?!

Hi, this sounds like an enhancement, I will set a component to have a starting point for this. If this is not the right component please feel free to route this ticket to the corresponding team, thanks!

The ClearDataService, at least partially, has this capability: https://searchfox.org/mozilla-central/rev/21f0bb70ce5747d18625ad1c67f03ed2af7f9c56/toolkit/components/cleardata/nsIClearDataService.idl#113
However, we don't expose this to the UI and there is no automated way to clear data of a specific age.
For the performance issue, see Bug 734643.
