How can I make Firefox save all the information a user has searched in their browser?  I suspect someone in my company has been going into warez sites and downloading movies. Is there a way to find out where exactly a user has been even though they are erasing the web history from their browser?

Most likely there is not a way to force firefox into doing what you need.  You would need some sort of software or hardware appliance that logged everything via another method.  Either on the workstation itself, or at the network level.

Sounds like you might need to do some forensics.

You can add the following to your userChrome.css file to hide the history button:
CODE
expander#history, #privacyCategories + hbox { display: none;}

Say its a bug to the user.
