Steps to reproduce:

I'm deleting historu older than a specified date. I used the Show all history window and select a span of time, ex. Sept 1 to 24. then I proceed to delete pages. That is around 10,000 pages.


Actual results:

It's deleting but it's slow, for 10,000 pages maybe 30 minutes and it used 1.1 Gb ram.


Expected results:

I think what happens is everytime Firefox deletes a history item, it refreshes the history list so it takes a lot of time to delete 10,000 pages. I don't need to see the list refreshed as it is being deleted. Ideally, firefox should delete the bulk history and refresh the window after it is done deleting.
