The webhistory starting to delete itself automatically

  • Hiyas Opera comrades!

    I've been a user for Opera for a few years now and currently my favourite browser while i surf privately. I have also Chrome and Firefox installed but using them more at moments while i'm having visitors over who sometimes lends my computer.

    So basically, reason i have many webbrowsers installed is that i wan't to have the easy choices separated to delete history in chrome and firefox which is the "main" browser to many of my friends eyes, and Opera which i keep all the remaining history which my friends and family never ever use while beeing on visit.

    Reason why it's so important for me to keep so much history in Opera as possible is because i'm part of art-communities, and when you click on a user's account-name it will "darken" in colour to show that i have visited their profile before, which is the part of the web-history.
    This is a super helpful function for me to find new interesting artists or photographers without by any accident visit the same account again unless i wan't too. But here's the thing

    Lately, some visited accounts darken text have started to get restored again as "unvisited" and i feel so bothered about that.

    I remember i read somewhere while Googling some weeks ago that Opera can only restore something like 10.000 webpages on default in some .dat file, and then it will start to delete by automatic after that. But i can't figure out any helpful threads while googling about it. Instead the only results i get on Google is mostly about how to delete history. But i wan't the opposite!

    So my question is, is there any way to extend this 10.000 pages function to like as say... 100.000? in any similar about:config option which firefox/chrome has?
    Or if a .dat file turns too big, if you can extend the limit of it too ?

    My current version is Opera 35.0 . I'm willing to downgrade to a lower version if i get this to work.
    I reallyreally wan't to keep as much history as possible, so any helpful advices will i be thankful for!

    Regards / Daniel
