- Rated 5 out of 5Thanks for creating this add-on. Works great.
- Rated 5 out of 5Must have!
- Rated 5 out of 5Works like a charm, set history clean for 7 days, gave it some time - history after week is gone. Shame they removed this from standard functionality after Firefox 3.
- Rated 2 out of 5I set this add-on for 31 days and... this adon is not removing removing my history after 31 days.
- Rated 5 out of 5Аддон отличный, но долгое время не может обновиться через браузер. Попыталась скачать xpi с сайта, тоже не устанавливается, пишет, что файл поврежден.
- Rated 5 out of 5I search for a plugin that deletes my history after an hour or change the Settings so Firefox only save for instance 100 pages and then delete the first saved page.
- Rated 1 out of 5All I want is a truly infinite history, going as far back as I can stretch it. Some day I want to look back at the pages I visited 10 years ago. Yes, I know that could cause performance issues. I don't care. If it gets that bad (and I haven't noticed any issues so far storing two years worth of history), I'll back up my existing history and start over.
Infinite means infinite, not capped at 999999 entries (which could easily be reached some day). Apparently though the extension developer here decided that his users were too stupid to understand the idea of "storing more history = more resources needed" and decided to remove the only thing that made his extension worthwhile in the first place, replacing it with instructions to change about:config entries that you could mess with yourself without having it installed anyway.
Unless the "disable places expiration" option is returned, this extension is pointless and you shouldn't even bother installing it. It's a shame that for whatever reason the developer decided that people weren't smart enough to use his add-on properly. That's how everything useful dies.
I'm just lucky I caught the change in the "updated" version of this extension before Firefox managed to wipe my history out. I've gone back to an old version until this issue is fixed. Shame on you for making this change so suddenly. What if somebody updated that already had more than 999999 entries in their history? You'd be wiping out the record of their digital life.
If you're going to put things under a big "scary options for experts" heading, then let those people actually pick the options that they want. Return the option to disable history expiration entirely.
Edit: If the response is true, then what does the (now disabled) preference "extensions.bonardonet.expire-history-by-days.disable_expiration" do?First: the disable expiration checkbox was just setting the pref to 999999, so nothing changes. Second, Webextensions cannot set prefs anymore, so that's why it's suggested to do that manually.
- Rated 5 out of 5Are you planning to convert it to a webextension? I'm sure every other user would love to continue using it after Firefox 57 releases.
- Rated 4 out of 5however really would like a whitelist option
- Rated 4 out of 5Installing the new 1.30 version with flashstopper 1.4.5 (not flashblocker) addon causes some buttons to be dimmed.
Like the previous reviewer wrote - there's no issue tracker - so see my report on the flashstopper forum -
- Rated 4 out of 5I don't find issue tracker location, so I write my bugreport to address — https://github.com/Kristinita/SashaMiscellaneous/issues/5 . Please, to see it, when you will have a free time.
Thanks for Expire History by days!
- Rated 4 out of 5Not sure why, but as of 1.2.1 this causes a slight delay in opening a window. Annoying, but not impossibly slow. Tabs are unaffected.
- Rated 5 out of 5This should actually be a default enabled feature in Firefox. Thanks for making this plugin!
- Rated 5 out of 5As the title says... props to dev for making this option available since Mozilla cannot. Thank you, you're the boss!
- Rated 3 out of 5This addon used to work great. I have it set to 999999999 days. It unfortunately keeps deleting my history after a year. Should I disable Places expiration?
Developer responseposted 4 years agoYes, if you don't want pages to expire, you should disable expiration. But notice that by doing so you may soon suffer of performance problems, especially in the awesomebar. The value you set likely doesn't work cause it's too large, you may rather try with 730 days for 2 years.
