Clear history older than X days

Unread post by Aurelia Odo Iunia » 2019-07-30, 12:45

This has been around for a while and may have even been a feature in Palemoon before. At present (version 28.6.1) history can been cleared on Palemoon quit or manually triggered from a list of choices. However, all the choices are from current time, back X hours. I want the reverse; to keep a week or a month of recent history to help re-find pages I've been visiting but clear old stuff I no longer need.

If this can be made to be done automatically at Palemoon quit, even better.

I'm using "Expire history by days 1.2.1" which can be found in the "Classic addon archive" or on Legacy Collectors site. There is a version 1.3.0 though I don't know if it also works. Will try it.

EDIT: Tried the 1.3.0 version and there are no options showing so try the 1.2.1 version.

+1 for "Expire history by days 1.2.1"

I've been using it for many years & it works flawlessly

I assume he's referring to the legacy Firefox add-on, which can probably be found on either Classic Add-ons Archive or the Legacy Collector's site.

Yes, it's in the Classic Add-ons Archive. Probably you searched the name as two words.
