    Try this link first. http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/...port+Home+Page
    and investigate the links therefrom. You may need to contact Mozilla to get specific historical information, ie. of the type provided when an update occurs and one is informed about the changes made since Version xx.xx.xx etc.

    Update: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mozilla_Firefox Click on History.

    It's under Tools - Clear Private Data.

    A window will pop up and you can select from various choices including Browsing History.

    So there isn't a file somewhere with the history details in it that I could access and open at all?

    Your pr0n is safe. Set FF to delete all personal data at close.
    Combine that with Onyx if you want.

    At last, Ska, I think I've found what you want, after misunderstanding your original question

    Spotlight -> type Firefox -> the first folder listed, which will show Firefox in Users/name/Library/Application Support. Click that folder in S'light.

    When it opens you'll see another folder called Profiles. 2x-click that folder after which you'll get another folder (with a strange name) in which you'll find a file called history.dat What you do with that file is entirely up to you. I see it gets modified regularly, so you may be able to delete it after which it'll get rebuilt next time you restart FFox.

    Firefox has a history viewer if that's what you want...
    View --> Sidebar --> History
