    In Firefox /Options/Privacy and Security there is a place to select Clear History. The box used to come up with a Clear History box at bottom to click. Then it took awhile to appear. Now does not appear at all. Anyone know why there is no box to click that says Clear History any more, or how to get it back? Version 61.0 (64 bit) latest version. See attached.

    Hi BGBG,

    Not quite sure what you are doing to not see the Clear History button.
    I'm using FF 61 as well and the clear history button shows as normal.
    Tools >> Options >> Privacy & Security

    Just click on the Clear Now button.

    If you want to clear all of the history, don't bother clicking on the details arrow.

    Another way is to Right Click anywhere right at the top, and put a tick in the "Menu Bar" option box.

    The Clear Now and Cancel boxes at bottom are not there even when I use the settings shown. I was using custom before but changed to Remember History but for some reason the boxes do not show even if I wait awhile. Not a great big issue but annoying now that I am used to having it. Will keep on working with it.
    I see activating the menu bar works. I used to use this but it went away. I reactivated it and now the boxes show.
    I appreciate the tip.

    According to you pick it is the top one that states Browsing & Download History.
    They have combined the two together in to one.
