Chapter 6: Returning to Sites You ve Visited


Have you ever had one of those dreams that hops from one scene to another without any logic to fill the gaps? You know the type. One minute you're eating breakfast, the next minute you're a flying coconut, the next minute you're breakfast and the flying coconut is eating you.

Sometimes surfing the Web feels the same way. One minute you're reading ESPN, and the next minute you're shopping for pants. The Internet is a random patchwork of information loosely joined by hyperlinks. If you're not careful, it's easy to get lost.

But Firefox is there for you. Its powerful yet simple history controls track your every move and allow you to swiftly return to any spot in your journey. You decide how much history Firefox remembers and when to empty out the history.

In real life, you have two kinds of memory: short-term and long-term. (Or perhaps you don't — where are those keys?) Firefox's memory works the same way. Your short-term history on the Web consists of the last ten Web sites you visited in the current browsing session, and your long-term history consists of all the sites you visited in the past nine days — or however many days you choose.

And, yes, those jeans look great on you — now get back to the sports page!
