seen using 2002.11.08.04 on 10.2.1.

0. turn on global history in the sidebar by adding the pref
user_pref("chimera.show_history", true);

1. launch chimera, open the sidebar and click the history (clock icon) tab.

observe: in the profile i'm using now, i see six folders labelled as 0, 4, 5, 6
and 6 (yep, last two are the same).

i know there's a bug asking to put more sensible labels on these (bug 162750),
but i have some other questions:

a. i haven't used this particular profile for a while, hence no history for the
last few days (1, 2, 3) --should those folders *still* exist, for clarity, even
though they'd be empty?

b. the last folder, redundantly called 6: shouldn't this have a clearer label,
like >6? this issue might still be bug 162750, but am not sure.
(b) is bug 162750 which has been fixed. not sure about (a). personally i do'nt
think those folders should exist, but it's up to the global history service in
mozilla. we just get its behavior, which i guess is to not show those folders.

if we really want it (and i'm not sure we do), we'd have to add special code to
mozilla, or write our own history impl. closing this bug as fixed, reopen if you
disagree.
