Expire history by days

Doesn't work properly? Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Hello,

For me, this addon doesn't seem to delete my history and leave the number of recent days I specify. I am using the latest Firefox release 9.0.1

Is this addon known to work properly on the latest Firefox or do any other addons or settings conflict with it?

Thank you.

My reply to MaK77:

Hi, thanks for replying. I appreciate this isn't a suitable place for an ongoing detailed discussion.

Is it the pc which needs to be idle or the browser? If the browser, when is the required idle state? Is it any time the pc is on with the browser closed? Or is it specifically just after closing the browser?

Usually I set your addon to 2 days, because my motive for using it is to keep the visited status of pages for 2 days.

I view the history via the Menu Bar, History, Show All History.

Also, if I use the Session Manager addon to change Firefox's default handling of sessions, is that likely to affect browsing history? Or is that completely separate to sessions?

Just to add finally, I removed your addon, disabled places.history, reset the expiration.transient values, enabled places.history then reinstalled your addon, all of which might now be giving me a better experience.
Can I check that the following config settings which I see / have are as expected and the only settings required for your addon to work correctly:

extensions.bonardonet.expire-history-by-days.days 2

extensions.bonardonet.expire-history-by-days.disable_expiration false

Menu Editor

Very helpful Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Thanks, this seems very nice and helpful. It made me realise how many Tools and context menus I had previously been tolerating. Nice to be able to change their order, as well.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.6).
