    I mean I allowed it to access bookmarks to Firefox and it was just ok. Past versions allowed I needed to allow just that. Why it now allows also my history of surfing of the sites i allow as bookmarks? It is desired as a wish to be able to as i delete she sandbox, to also not seen where i have browsed, even if they are in my bookmarks

    Its been like that forever, nothing has changed lately in either Firefox or SBIE with respect to how bookmarks and history are handled.

    Firefox uses a file named places.sqlite to save bookmarks and history. To save either one, you need to save the other. I erase history by setting Firefox in Options>Privacy to "Never remember History".

    I don't do anything to Sandbox as far as configuring it with Eraser. And I am pretty sure that when I delete the Sandbox, there is no trace of browsing history.

    This is the file that Firefox uses to save bookmarks and history. It is also the file that SBIE allows directs access when you allow bookmarks to be saved out of the sandbox. Read the second line. Probably, you have Firefox set not to remember history as I do.
