11 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8.1.11) Gecko/20071127 Firefox/2.0.0.11
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8.1.11) Gecko/20071127 Firefox/2.0.0.11

When I set browser.sessionstore.enabled=false and restart the browser, the history menu shows an empty history.  History entries are still recorded and may be viewed in the sidebar, but no pre-existing or new entries will be displayed in the menu until this configuration entry is reset to 'true' and the browser restarted again.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Navigate to about:config in the OS X build of Firefox and set browser.sessionstore.enabled=false.
2. Restart the browser.
3. Open the history menu.
Actual Results:  
The history menu does not display any of the entries in my browsing history from this or previous sessions.

Expected Results:  
The history menu should show the history entries.

I have reproduced this on both PPC and Intel machines using a fresh profile (with no extensions).
