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.
Travis, can you take a look at this post-Beta? Pass it off to Bill, if necessary ...
