Details

in my prefs, I have it set so when I bring up a new navigator window, it comes
up blank.  we are implementing that right now by loading about:blank

this adds about:blank (with no title) to my history, and I can see that entry
(it's a blank entry, since there is no title) in the go menu.

I don't think we should be adding about:blank, about:, or any of the about urls
to the history.

This is a lot like bug 11324: generally bogus internal URLs being added to the
history. I've tried adding a stoopid hack to nsGlobalHistory that just drops
"about:" and "chrome:" URLs on the floor; unfortunately, for "chrome:", we
still get the resolved chrome URL (e.g.,
"file:///mozilla/dist/bin/res/blah/blah") in the history. I think there needs
to be some hackery up in the webshell to be smarter about this, but not exactly
sure how it'd work.

necessary ...
