If I want to delete all of today's history, I cannot, even though if I right-click on 'Today' in the history pane, there is a 'delete' option. Instead I must delete items one by one.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:

3.
On Windows XP, latest hourly, this works as expected, I think this is a bug that was recently fixed.

I can reproduce with Firefox 3.0 release. The steps are easy:

1. Open the History sidebar.
2. Open a day branch
3. Place the cursor in a history entry
4. With keyboard select a couple of entries
5. Press delete key
6. The sidebar refreshes but all the entries but the first one (the one where you started the selection) are still there

Very irritating...

WFM also  via context menu, right click "today" and select delete all

DonGato - you are describing different steps than the reporter - who said right click, i.e. "context menu", not keyboard. but this also WFM via keyboard
1. view by date 
2. open and click day 5
3. use keyboard arrows to select 3 days
4. delete key
results: all selected are deleted
5. click on day 5 line
6. delete key
results: all day 5 is deleted

Ok. Should I open a new bug entry then or you already handled this? It wasn't clear enough for me.

iirc I saw another bug about this. I could be wrong. But in any case, you'll have to search.
