Currently Being ModeratedAug 24, 2006 6:44 PM (in response to retrieve deleted web history)Hi Glazeginger,
That's an interesting question, I use Firefox and I can't seem to find anything about recovering history after deletion...
I suggest you go to the Firefox Forum, it's where the Firfox Gurus hand out...
Good luck, Rick

The history data file can be found in your User Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/default.tra/history.dat
When you delete the history file, Firefox creates a new one the next time you open the browser. In the meantime, only data recovery software is going to offer any prospect of recovering the deleted file - a very expensive option. OS X eventually writes over deleted files - hard to say when. However, the more activity on the computer, the sooner this event occurs.iMac G5 Rev C 20" 2.5gb RAM 250 gb HD/iBook G4 1.33 ghz 1.5gb RAM 40 gb HD, Mac OS X (10.4.7), LaCie 160gb d2 HD Canon i960 printer
