- by wilfonfang, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5I like this add-on, expecially the feature: 'Clear all history for a domain on demand', but sometimes the domain's history is useful for searching. I suggest to add a new menu item - 'retain 1 history entry for this domain'.
- by Steve Turner, 4 years agoRated 3 out of 5It works as claimed, but I had to disable it because it caused significant performance problems with regular browsing activity. Simple scrolling operations on commonly-used web pages (e.g., Facebook) became annoyingly sluggish.
Edit per developer reply: Yes, turning off "Show Number of Visits In Browser Icon" helps quite a bit. I also turned off "Log Total Number Of History Deleted", which seems to help a bit too, but perhaps not as much. I still detect some minor loss of scrolling performance, but overall it's much better. Thanks.
Edit 2: Something else I've noticed: Removing the history for a link causes the browser's read/unread highlighting for that link to show as "unread". I'm curious if that's even something that can be addressed...
Developer responseposted 4 years agoGo to settings and turn off "Show Number of Visits In Browser Icon" and see if that helps. If that helps, then perhaps I need to disable that setting by default on install.
Edit 1: "Removing the history for a link causes the browser's read/unread highlighting for that link to show as "unread"". I think that the browser uses the history to determine whether a link is unread or not, so if you delete the history, the link will show as unread.
Also this extension works best with e10s enabled which would probably solve your scrolling issue.

Good for privacy, good for sanity.
What would be the chances for a Fennec version?
Developer responseposted 4 years agoYep I made this extension to give better control of my history rather than the all or nothing approach. As for your question, please see:
- by sleek61, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5Thank you to the author for making this excellent add-on!
I have been using this add-on for a few weeks now and it works as promised. It's interesting to check the logs and see how it is deleting history entries and keeping the size of places.sqlite from growing.
My places.sqlite used to keep growing and I would occasionally have to delete large chunks of history to keep it in check. Now this add-on does that function for me.
An absolutely essential add-on.
