I would like to see if I can add history manually. Whether it meant creating a new profile or "managing" the one that's currently being used, it would work. There's currently no tutorial for this on the internet. I've tried everything. Currently all that I see is a Cache with 0-9 and some letters, however I know the history is stored here. I'm not an advanced user, so this is as far as I've been able to get. Thanks.

What are you trying to accomplish? -- adding individual history entries, or importing another profile's history in bulk? – Aaron Miller Jul 15 '13 at 16:39

Have you tried looking on firefoxes support website for any clues? – Jason Bristol Jul 15 '13 at 16:53

Close Firefox, locate the places.sqlite file in your profile folder and edit it using any SQLite database editor.
