can the user do this from the UI?

Using Camino 0.7 I can do this from UI, and I've been using this setting.
Using 20040125NB I can't do this from UI.

You can set the nr of days kept in history to 0 in the navigation/history pane
in preferences. So it's possible through UI.

But when you add that line (why would you use that when 99% of the people will
use the UI) Camino hanged on when I tried to open History. And wouldn't open the BM.

Setting the days kept in history to 0 with UI however did not create problems.

Perhaps the pref is Mozilla only?

After deleting "user_pref("browser.history_expire_days", 0);" from prefs.js, I
launch Camino 0.7 and set the number of days to 0 in Preferences, Camino 0.7
writes it to prefs.js again.

So I think the pref isn't Mozilla only.

In Comment #2, I wrote using 20040125NB I can't do this from UI.
It meant that I could set the number of days to 0 in Preferences but it couldn't
be saved.
But it wasn't accurate.

After deleting "user_pref("browser.history_expire_days", 0);" from prefs.js, I
launch 20040125NB and
1) Open Navigation/History pane in Preferences
2) Set the number of days to 0
3) Open Navigation/Home Page pane
4) Close Preferences
5) Then it rewrites the prefs to prefs.js and can be saved.
