Clear history en masse..

Unread post by Tasty Crayons » 2016-03-01, 00:16

Hi folks.

Long time user of Palemoon, but new to mobile version.
Is there a way to clear several or all of search history in the mobile version?
I found the way to clear them one at a time, but nothing else.

Using Flyme OS on an MX5 if that helps.

Thanks in advance.

For clearing "all of search history" ... do you mean other than using (from the menu bar):

History > Clear Recent History

... which gives the option of "Time range to clear" - Everything
and then you can choose among
- Browsing & Download History
- Form & Search History
- Cookies
- Cache

etc.

This doesn't answer your question, but -- You may have meant to post in the Pale Moon for Android board. "Portable" doesn't equal "mobile" -- portable versions are made so you can carry them, eg., between desktops on a USB.

I haven't used PM for Android, but my impression was that it didn't have a desktop-style menubar. Is that correct?

Good points coffeebreak. I think you're right, Tasty Crayons (really needs a better diet, heh) ... probably should have posted in the PM for Android - https://forum.palemoon.org/viewforum.php?f=39 area.

I should have looked up Flyme b4 I replied. ;)

Not having an Android, I'm not sure if the PM for Android version has the menubar. Sounds like it maybe doesn't.
That being said, perhaps an add-on might work for this situation, say something like this:

Clean Quit
- https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/androi ... cleanquit/#
or
Clear History
- https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... ry/?src=ss
etc.

Could be worth a look and some testing.

I'm hoping there is a way to just keep history for 7 days at a time before it gets deleted automatically. Is there?
