I have my firefox set up to automatically delete my history. When I search I can see that there are history.dat files that I've learned contain internet history info whether it was deleted or not. I can't seem to open these files, is there some way to do so? Please help!
Thanks folks

hello and welcome to geekstogo,
there is only one way that i know of that you can open it without some kind of an error and thats using notepad. There will be bit of stuff that you can't read however there is a bit that you can make out that have some domains. Might be wrong but i think this is the only way of reading what the file contains.
