MZHistoryView v1.65 32bit

MZHistoryView is a small utility that reads the history data file (history.dat) of Firefox/Mozilla/Netscape Web browsers, and displays the list of all visited Web pages in the last days. For each visited Web page, the following information is displayed: URL, First visit date, Last visit date, Visit counter, Referrer, Title, and Host name.
You can also easily export the history data to text/HTML/Xml file.

The name of this tool was changed from MozillaHistoryView to MZHistoryView due to the obsession of Mozilla Foundation people with their registered trademark. I have received a threatening letter from the attorney of Mozilla Foundation saying that using the 'Mozilla' word inside the name of my software infringes their trademark rights and demanding that I'll change the name of this tool.
In order to avoid from any trouble in the future, I decided to change the name of this tool to MZHistoryView.

System Requirements
This utility works on any version of Windows, From Windows 98 to Windows 10. For all Firefox/Mozilla versions except of Firefox 3, you can use this utility even if Firefox/Mozilla is not installed on your system, as long as you have the history file (history.dat or places.sqlite) that you want to inspect. If you want to read the history file of Firefox 3 or later (places.sqlite file), Firefox must be installed on your system.

Versions History

Version 1.65:

Added 'Quick Filter' feature (View -> Use Quick Filter or Ctrl+Q). When it's turned on, you can type a string in the text-box added under the toolbar and MZHistoryView will instantly filter the browsing history, showing only lines that contain the string you typed.

Using MZHistoryView
MZHistoryView doesn't require any installation process or additional DLL files. Just copy the executable file (MozillaHistoryView.exe) to any folder you like, and run it.
After you run it, the main window displays the list of visited Web pages loaded from the history.dat of the Mozilla/Firefox profile that you used in the last time. If you want to view the content of another history file, simply use the 'Select History File' option (Ctrl + H), or drag the history.dat filename from Explorer into the main window of MZHistoryView.
You can select one or more history items, and then export the list into text/HTML/Xml file ('Save Selected Items' option). You can also copy the selected items to the clipboard, and then paste them to Excel or to OpenOffice spreadsheet.

/stext <Filename> Save the list of all visited Web sites into a regular text file.
/stab <Filename> Save the list of all visited Web sites into a tab-delimited text file.

/sort <column> This command-line option can be used with other save options for sorting by the desired column. If you don't specify this option, the list is sorted according to the last sort that you made from the user interface. The <column> parameter can specify the column index (0 for the first column, 1 for the second column, and so on) or the name of the column, like "URL" and "Last Visit Date". You can specify the '~' prefix character (e.g: "~Last Visit Date") if you want to sort in descending order. You can put multiple /sort in the command-line if you want to sort by multiple columns.

MozillaHistoryView.exe /shtml "f:\temp\history.html" /sort 2 /sort ~1
MozillaHistoryView.exe /shtml "f:\temp\history.html" /sort "Last Visit Date"
