I have a Toshiba Laptop that is running Windows Xp. My wife inadvertently deleted the internet browsing history when she was web surfing. We are using Mozilla Firefox, version 3 I believe.

From within the application you can not you could possibly check your deleted items and see if they are in there.  If not there then you will have to acquire a third party recover tool to recover deleted items from your hard drive even that will not be 100 percent.

Hello badicara,

In the address bar type in about:cache and see if anything shows up there.  If not, the history is gone. Sorry!

Hope this helps!

You can view the cache, and get the Address History URL that you need.  If the cache is not available, then it is gone.  You have find the URL address some other way.
