Bug 463154 added timestamps on form & search history for creation and usage, and Bug 453440 added the concept of removing history for a time range - but neither actually made the new UI obey the user's specified time range.

So right now the UI is broken in ways that will cause dataloss.

Eh, I'll finish it up.

Bacon on, then!

Please also update the existing sanitize-timespan.js test?
Attached patch Patch v.1Splinter Review
Straightforward patch with gobs of testing.

I caught a bug in the existing sanitizer tests... The |Date| object doesn't have a .year property, so using it was resulting in NaN values. .getFullYear() is what should be used.

Also, I think this should be a Beta 2 blocker. Otherwise trying to clear 1 hour of form history results in clearing *all* form history. :(

I am trying to figure out to verify this using SQL Lite Browser. I assume I can check the formhhistory.sqlite to see whether the data is being removed?
Yeah, that should work fine.
