Description

If I use the bookmark menu and tell mozilla to go to my home page 5 times then I
end up with 5 entries under the go menu.  This is new behavior.  Mozilla used
not to put consecutive duplicates under the go menu, and 4.X does not do it
either.

Reproduced with 2000-02-21-08-M14 and both the M13 and M12 releases 
on WinNT. This has been around for a while, at least. 

Simplest ways to reproduce:
A. Click on the "Mozilla.org" button on the Personal Taskbar a few times,
   waiting for the page to load each time, then observe the Go menu.
B. Load any page, then click in the URLbar again, press the [ENTER] key,
   repeat, then observe the Go menu.

Pressing the Reload button does not have this effect.

This is quite possibly the same issue as seen in bug 21611, "Meta-refreshed 
page becomes added again to Go menu upon each refresh", M15

It probably makes sense to take a look at bug 27829, "history "go" is funky 
when the url's are the same" at the same time that this problem is fixed.

The "B" steps to reproduce are exactly equivalent to bug 29609, "reloading by 
hitting enter in URL bar creates new history entry", ASSIGNED, no milestone.
