Description

10 years ago
When the History menu was called “Go”, Go → Home made sense, because it mimicked natural language, but it doesn't make much sense to keep Home in the History menu.

The Home menu item should be in the Bookmarks menu instead: Home has been described as “just a special bookmark” (and I seem to recall this being the justification for moving the Home toolbar button to the Bookmarks toolbar).

This does not block the final release of Firefox 3.

Also note that the home button is moving back to the navigation toolbar for Firefox 3, so it continues to make sense to keep the Home menuItem alongside the Forward and Back navigation elements.
Even if the Home button is moving back, I don't think that means this bug is automatically WONTFIX. Greg's logic is good - Go | Home, made sense, History | Home makes much less sense.

We should probably wait until changes are checked in, before add that keyword. Sorry for the confusion.
