Created attachment 567301 [details] "Juni" is june User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:7.0.1) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/7.0.1 Build ID: 20110928134238 Steps to reproduce: Visited history and filtered by months or 6 months ago Actual results: Visits from this week/month appeared Expected results: Visits from the selected months should appear
that column is the global last visited date, not last visited date inside that month timeframe. bug 381519 and bug 497202 cover that easy confusion
But I cannot see any visits within this month ...
So, the date points to this month, but the This Month container does not show a visit to that url? Is that a download url or something different from a common visit?
There are some unique visits, so that I never visited them again. These are normal visits like news, google-queries ... Additionally, there is none entry within the specified month, so that it is very curious that I visited every site again. I would expect at least only one entry with the right date... Due to huge lags I cleared the history (which had shown just about 200 entries, too little number) and got a huge performance boost.

Reporter -> Are you still experiencing this issue with Firefox 9.0.1?
Yes. Unfortunately I think so. There are still some URLs for October which I visited in December firstly. Even with the older than six months filter I get some matches although I reinstalled Windows on my SSD in September. Perhaps the Sync-feature is responsible for this bug? I am constanty facing an error (freely translated from German: "Sync - Error with sync: Unknown error. Sync will try again automatically [#button#: Sync now]"). Two PCs (Win7) are syncing everything but passwords (not used). I can see recent bookmarks and superbar-previously-visited-suggestions on both systems. If neccessary I can take screenshots or give a list of the items, but I would like to censor some private data (Logins, Names and some PHP-parameters)
Can you try reproducing in Safe Mode or a new Profile? If you can reproduce in a new profile can you document each step you take (i.e. 1) Load new profile 2) visit example.com 3) look in history - no visit listed) Safe Mode -> http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Safe+Mode New Profile -> http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Basic%20Troubleshooting#w_8-make-a-new-profile
Safe mode does not solve the problem. I cannot reproduce the issue in a new profile easily. Firefox behaves as I expect it to do (changing Windows date -> visits shown correctly, it even has an second entry in the month I switched to when page still opened). About ten visits tested. Additionally, I looked for my brand-new subnotebook. It is synced with the build-in feature (cf. error comment #7) and has the same issue in history. Unfortunately, I resetted my old notebook to factory settings and have only a complete backup (so I cannot easily check its history). So, the problem seems to be related to sync or at least sync transfers the data that creates the problem. PS: Some facts are very strange in my eyes ... I cannot believe, that I just had 25 visits in 10 days (no holidays) and never checked my mail-accounts during this time...
I don't think we can easily debug this, it could indeed just be history synced by another device
