Firefox history stats with Bash

 / Published in: Bash


This is a small script to gather some statistics from your Firefox history. First we use sqlite3 to parse the Firefox history database and get the last three months, then we remove all the IP addresses and port numbers and finally we sort and count them.

  1. #!/bin/bash
  3. if [[ ! -d ${HOME}/.www ]]; then
  4. mkdir ${HOME}/.www
  5. fi
  7. cp "$(find "${HOME}/.mozilla/firefox/" -name "places.sqlite" | head -n 1)" "${HOME}/.www/places.sqlite"
  8. sqlite3 "${HOME}/.www/places.sqlite" "SELECT url FROM moz_places, moz_historyvisits WHERE = moz_historyvisits.place_id and visit_date > strftime('%s','now','-3 month')*1000000 ORDER by visit_date;" > "${HOME}/.www/urls-unsorted"
  9. sort -u "${HOME}/.www/urls-unsorted" > "${HOME}/.www/urls"
  10. awk -F/ '{print $3}' "${HOME}/.www/urls" | grep -v -E -e '[0-9]{1,3}\.[0-9]{1,3}\.[0-9]{1,3}\.[0-9]{1,3}' -e ':.*' -e '^$' | sed -e 's/www\.//g' |sort | uniq -c | sort -n
