Windows 7: Firefox 5 history expiration

Firefox 5 history expiration

I want to save all my browsing history, but the problem is that firefox 5 deletes history entries every time I close my browser.

In firefox 3 I set it to save browsing history for 999999 days, that way it would never delete my browsing history.

How do I do the same in Firefox 5?

Go to Options->Privacy and in History, Firefox will: select Use custom Settings.There on the bottom uncheck Clear History when Firefox closes.

I don't use custom settings, I use "Remember history".

is there a way through about:config?

Make sure that you don't have CCleaner set to delete your history.
