Details

The "last_page_visited" pref is written out as a string.  This means that if the
URL in question has any UTF8 or anything like that in it the pref will be
useless (it will not correspond to the URL).  We should be setting the pref as a
complex object.

Actually, I think "last_page_visited" is retired. The last page visited is 
actually stored in history.dat, although I still see two lingering references
to this pref in the entire mozilla tree.
