I clicked 'clear history' and mozilla sucked 100% CPU for 78 seconds to turn history.dat from a 397518 byte file to a 258 byte file. O_TRUNC, anyone? Is there any reason to not start over? Would be a major perf improvement, and eliminate the need for fixing bug 93233 (progress indication).
Given the 300x speedup blake checked in for history deletion yesterday, this shouldn't be necessary. My 200k history.dat cleared instantly. If someone wants to test a 2M or so history file on a low end machine to verify this wouldn't be worth doing...
