Firefox 3 no longer uses the sessionstore.js format to save its data, but when you upgrade from Firefox 2 we don't get rid of the old data. That's a chunk of potentially juicy history and cookie data that we should clean up rather than leave hanging around forever.  We should check for that at least once each session and delete it if found (some people might switch back and forth a few times before settling into the new version).

What have I missed? Last I checked, SessionStore was alive and kicking... and using sessionstore.js just fine. -> INVALID

Sorry about that, testing error with a less-fresh-than-believed profile. I was only seeing places.sqlite get touched and thought the data had migrated.
