Link Visitor


This add-on provides the ability to add single or multiple links to the browser history, making them appear visited, without having to actually visit them. It also allows them to be removed from the history.

For this extension to work, Firefox's privacy settings must be set a minimum of 'Remember my browsing and download history', and the about:config option layout.css.visited_links_enabled must be set to true.

For a single link, right click on a link and select 'Toggle visited status'.

For selected links, select the area containing the desired links, right click and select 'Mark Selected Links As' then 'Visited' or 'Unvisited'.

For all links on a page, right click and select 'Mark Links As' then 'Visited' or 'Unvisited' (Note: this will not appear if you right click on a link or have text selected) Alternatively select the toolbar button and pick the desired option.

Preferences: (v5)

Preferences are stored in the browsers local storage unless the browser sync storage is enabled for web extensions.

To enable browser sync storage set webextensions.storage.sync.enabled to true in about:config
