Happened to me also. Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win95; en-US; rv:1.6b) Gecko/20031203 Firebird/0.7+ I would expect the url history for the session Windows crashed in to be lost, but not ALL the history.

This is IMO not a dupe of bug 221797. The attachment 136736 [details] [diff] [review] (bug 221797, comment 21) fixes a Win9x/ME only issue in the mork module. The patch has no effect on WinNT/2K/XP. The global history (history.dat) uses mork. The drop down history (localstore.rdf) uses RDF which is not affected by the patch.

not only session addition, but all the drop down urls are also lost.
Reporter, can you reproduce this on a newer build of Mozilla Firefox? I'm moving this to Location Bar/Autocomplete.
Happens to me, even when Windows does not crash. History gone, all the drop down urls also gone. Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040803 Firefox/0.9.3
Is this clearing all the history, or is it only clearing the URL drop down bar? If this clears all the history, it should be duped to bug 102519.
re comment 3 "The drop down history (localstore.rdf) uses RDF which is not affected by the patch." Are you sure? I think it is stored in history.dat too. If anybody experienced autocomplete urls loss *without* history loss, reopen. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 102519 ***
> Are you sure? I think it is stored in history.dat too. Yes, correct. Mozilla stores drop down history in localstore.rdf but Firefox uses history.dat for global and drop down history.
