In the history sidebar in any view with trees ("Date", "Date and Site"), the
expand/hide widgets will expand but not hide nodes until some node has been
selected (and highlighted).

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open history sidebar and change view to "By Date and Site".
2. Expand some nodes in the history tree, and change view to "By Date".
3. Change view back to "By Date and Site" and left-click on a expand/hide widget
next to an expanded node.

Actual Results:  
No node is highlighted and selected, and no expanded node can be collapsed. 
Left-clicking on any node will select/highlight it, allowing nodes to be collapsed.

Expected Results:  
The tree node should have collapsed, regardless of whether any node was
selected, but some node probably -should- have been selected anyway.

Beware; <a href="">bug
#213246</a> interferes with this, so make sure that in step #2 you expand enough
nodes to activate the scrollbar.  Spinning a mouse scrollwheel, if you have one,
will refresh the sidebar without selecting an entry, still allowing
demonstration of the bug.
