Yes you can save it in one file, its really very simple process. Open All History by pressing Ctrl+shift+H or by menu oprtion , Now press Ctrl+A to select all, Ctrl+C to copy , then Ctrl+V to paste in a notepad file. Very simple.

Firefix saves history in places.sqlite in your Firefox profile. As the extension indicates, it's a SQLite database. I can successfully open it with a JDBC (Java) based query tool and the SQLite JDBC driver.

Download MozBackup , MozBackup is a simple utility for creating backups of Mozilla Firefox, Mozilla Thunderbird, Mozilla Sunbird, Flock, SeaMonkey, Mozilla Suite, Spicebird, Songbird and Netscape profiles.

It allows you to backup and restore bookmarks, mail, contacts, history, extensions, cache etc. It's an easy way to do Firefox backup, Thunderbird backup ...

There is in import/backup option within the history library, import to HTML and copy it, then paste it in word.

Hello,

I have accidentaly deleted a URL from my firefox history. Can I retrieve it somewhere? Is it still saved somewhere deeper on my computer?

I am afraid the item was deleted when "in private browsing" was active. Can I still retrieve the deleted URL somehow?
