Which log files? Do you want to check browser history?

You can find firefox related configurations under ~/.mozilla directory, but it do not contains any log files.

In the meantime, if you want to check browser history, then you find it in History tab.

*Note Mozilla Firefox stores its history, bookmarks, cookies and such in SQLite databases (files with the ".sqlite" extension) so if you need to view those you do not need to start a browser but you can use the CLI 'sqlite3' or the GUI SQLitebrowser tool or equivalent.
