Severity: normal → minor
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.

That's a known bug, will be fixed in Firefox 8.

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
