They're stored in an sqlite database in your profile 4 directory (e.g. C:\Documents and Settings\xxxxx\Application 3 Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\xxxxx), in 2 a file called formhistory.sqlite.

You can 1 download the sqlite client to browse and edit the database.

Score: 3

Update (as per comment): No longer true with the new Webextension API. Form History control manages a separate history.

The Form History Control extension can remove 2 a specific input and same input from all 1 form history.

I develop Adobe AIR applications and use 9 Lita to view their SQLite databases. I 8 just tried it on the firefox forms database 7 and I like it better than the firefox extension.

The 6 good thing about the extension is that it 5 provides easy access to your databases but 4 once you know where they all are:

On a mac:
/Users/[yourName]/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/[profileName]

On windows:
C:\Documents and Settings\[yourName]\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\[profileName]

Then, I 3 think you're better off using your favorite 2 SQLite client.

For me, on a Mac that's Lita:


NOTE: Lita will also work on Windows and Linux.

... hope 1 that helps someone!
