When you call Ctrl + H and open old entries, scrolling of this history window is almost impossible and consumes 100% of CPU. 2) If you sort such a large history by site and if you try to delete a given site entries accumulated across many days then Firefox will make a hole in your HDD after rewriting the history.dat file great many times. Reproducible: Always
There's an update of the history code planned for Firefox 3.0 (it was removed from the feature list of Firefox 2.0, because the GUI wasn't ready in time). http://wiki.mozilla.org/Places http://wiki.mozilla.org/Browser_History

Opening history is very slow - takes 20 seconds or more on my system and hanging firefox while it is taking place. Same for attempting to use the "go" menu. Firefox 220.127.116.11 and 2.0 on MacOS X 10.4.9 both exhibit the same behaviour.
