Steps to Reproduce:

1. Help->Help Contents
2. Click "Browsing the Web"
3. Click on (or scroll down to) Retracing your Steps

Actual Results:
[snip]
To access the history list from Navigator. Open the Task menu, choose 
Tools, then History. 

This doesn't seem to be right.  I'm using a 1.1 release candidate,
and the Task menu seems to be gone.  Tools is a toplevel window,
but it is missing any reference to History.  I do find History 
under the Go menu, which seems to do the right thing.

This really just needs a minor update, but I'm not sure where in 
the installation to find nav_help.html, other than by recreating
it by doing File->SaveAs, which I believe is not guaranteed to 
accurately reproduce everything.

This may apply to more than PC/Linux -- are the menus organised
the same way across platforms (apart from system stuff like Quit
on the app menu on OS X)?
Also, in the same file:

# If you don't see My Sidebar, it may be closed. Open it by clicking 
# its handle. If the handle is missing, select View and then My Sidebar.

This also seems to have changed in the menu reorg.  Should now be:

If you don't see the sidebar, it may be closed.  Open it by clicking
its handle.  If the handle is missing, select the View Menu, choose 
Show/Hide, and select Sidebar.  

Added sidebar to summary.
