Here I’m going to share two tools which will help you in this issue.
1. HistoryBlock: This is a Firefox add-on which help you to block websites to appear in your browsing history. After installation, just restart your browser and then go to Tool -> Add-ons -> HistoryBlock -> Options. After that, just type the host you want to block and then click on Blacklist. You can unblock a site same way but that time after typing host name, you need to click on Unblacklist.
2. CacheFire: You can call it Firefox History Manager. It extends the power of HistoryBlock add-on. Here you can exclude sites by string. Assume you don’t want to show any game related site on history. You don’t need to add each of those websites url. Just add game or games and whenever you visit a site which have the game or games string within its domain, Firefox will exclude them from browsing history.(Download link)
