Unable to restore browser history FF49.02 FEBE 8.9.2

Postby disr » Sun Oct 23, 2016 3:13 pm

Attempting to shrink the history file: places.sqlite (currently 51mB).
I pruned several years of browsing history but the file didn't decrease, (as the Mozilla forums confirm).
I performed a FEBE backup generating the file: historyFx49.0.2(FEBE8.9.2){FirefoxProfile}.json containing 13373 lines of data.
I renamed (just in case) places.sqlite and allowed FF to create a fresh one.
I then selected Restore | Restore Browser History and selected above file.
I responded OK to the warning and then - nothing.
I waited a minute or so then closed FF, reopened and the History was still empty.
I suppose it never even started.
Browser console give no error when filtering on FEBE.
What should I do?

Restoring browser history is the most time consuming function FEBE encounters. Before we try to debug it, let it run for a while (perhaps overnight). If it takes more than a few hours (or an error occurs), I'll give you another option.
