I recently did a search in my firefox history. The site I was looking for came up but I got curious about what day I had been to the site. I didn't see anything to indicate this in the listing. Is there any way in firefox history, (and just out of curiousity firefox booksmarks, too), to get a date on each item listed?

Thank you so much. Sorry I bothered you guys with something I probably could have googled for myself. I've been a bit swamped lately and that time it was just easier to post a question. For anybody else reading this thread, go to bookmarks>show all bookmarks, then click "views", scroll down to "show columns" and check "visit date".

I have the History in my FireFoix browser set to display date and time of visit. Here's how you do it:

In the menu bar on the FireFox browser click on History > Views > Show Columns and you'll see the following dialog box below:

Posted Image

Scroll down to click and place a check mark to the left of Visit Date. That will add a column to the far right to display the date that the site was visited. Please note that today's date will only display the time though yesterdays History will display date and time of visit and once the History is cleared, the previous History will not be accessible thereafter.

:thumbsup:
