I have no idea what my Dad's done with Firefox (he says nothing, but that's what he always says when he's changed something), but for some reason now Firefox has completely no history. And because of this it has no automatic bookmarks when you type URLs into the address bar, the forward, back, and recent pages buttons are non-functional, and obviously, the History pane has nothing in it.
Any suggestions on what happened? And what to do to fix this?
Going off the fact that there's no browser history...
I'm going to assume he deleted the browser history.
Nah, I wish he had, though. That would have been easy to fix.
You know how if you go into google, search something, then click on a result? If you want to go back to the list that Google brought up of fetched results, you can just click the back button? Well, my back button is always greyed out now. And you know how links you've clicked on are grayer compared to new links? Well I have no links that I've clicked on, either. Everything appears brand new. I've just discovered I have no bookmarks anymore :( My home page, according to Firefox, is no longer anything special, I have to type in the URL every time I want to go there. And on that note, no auto-complete for URLs either. The history pane, even now, opens up just a blank pane, even though I've gone onto various forums and such looking for solutions to this problem.
And the list of problems continue... :(
