Copy/Paste History and/or Downloads

Post by cosmo666 » 2019-11-17, 01:06

It appears that while we can select the contents of both history & downloads windows, and while it appears there is a 'Copy' option available via right-click, I am unable to actually copy the selected content into a terminal text buffer, nor am I able to do a 'Save Page As Html' on the selected windows.

I don't want to lose my history, but I'd like to be able to archive it outside of the browser, while keeping as much of the metadata surrounding the line items in both cases (History & Downloads).

Is there a way to enable this? I know the information is available via SQLite, but of limited use unless you have SQLite coding experience. Why not simply enable Save Page As Html, or at least View Source on those windows?

Thanks in advance for suggestions.

There's an extension called 'History Export' you could try. Install the Classic Addon Archive first and search for it there.

BrowsingHistoryView and FirefoxDownloadsView from Nirsoft allow to export the contents of history and downloads windows in various formats.
