Update this page with any information that is relevant one way or another to the browsing history within firefox.

History is stored together with bookmarks in a database file named places.sqlite.
~/.mozilla/firefox/{xxx}.default/places.sqlite
where {xxx} can be the host name or something else.

See sqlite for working with .sqlite files.

Sample query to browse the history from the command line:

$ sqlite3 ~/.mozilla/firefox/NNN.default/places.sqlite

Firefox: ALSA and Pulseaudio

USE=-pulseaudio : audio will not play without pulseaudio installed

ALSA support removed

In Firefox release 52, Mozilla disabled ALSA support by default and made Firefox default to Pulseaudio.

USE=-pulseaudio : audio will not play without pulseaudio installed

www-client/firefox-bin

If you use ALSA and don't have pulseaudio installed, sound will not work with firefox-bin. You have to compile firefox instead.
