Is there a way to tell which day entries in the History log were made?

Firefox only shows the most recent visit of a specific link, so if you open a link then the most recent visit day will change to today.
Older visits are hidden, but are used to calculate the visit count.
History entries for today only show the time and older visits should show date and time.
You can make more columns visible in the Library, but not all columns apply to history.

Click on View->Show Columns put a check on Most Recent Visit You will time/date Any visited 'today' will not show a date only time but going back in your history you will see the date of the last visit.

I don't have a Most Recent Visit column.
Column1: Name
Column2: Tags (which is blank)
Column3: Location

That's it

You can right-click the column header to select what columns to show.
You may have to drag the Library window wider if there isn't enough room to show all selected columns or drag existing columns smaller.

I think I'm going to give up. There is no slider. I was able to delete the blank tag column and compress the Location column 'til I can see the Last Modified column and it is blank

ctrl+h (for history) then right click in the header of column "Name" then chose desired information.

If the Most Recent Visit column is "checked" on the right-click column list but you can't see it, click on the vertical divider to the left of Visit Count and drag to the right to open up the space where it should be.

You shouldn't the 'Last Modified' column as this column only applies to bookmarks and not to history.
For history you need to use the Most Recent Visit column as pasted above a few times.
