Hi,

In Firefox it is permanently deleted when you delete the history. The index.dat file is used by IE and not by Firefox. Firefox uses a SQLite database file named places.sqlite to store the history and the bookmarks. You would need to restore an older copy of this places.sqlite file to recover the deleted history.

So in the future if I want to avoid this I should make a copy of that file and stash it somewhere?

But the actual downloaded files themselves are in the download folder - that seems to be?
