Hi,

I have my firefox setting such that it deletes the history and cookies as soon as I exit out of firefox.
However, there was a very important link I forgot to save. Is there a way to undelete history in firefox?

Please advice.

Thanks,

Amit

I am afraid there is no "undelete" for that action.

I do not believe so.

There is a very tiny chance that a file undelete utility would recover that data, but usually the new history would be written in the very same hard disk location as the old one.
The filename of the file is history.dat.
Here is one utility:

If you didn't clear cache, perhaps: Cache Viewer
