Description Aaron Train [:aaronmt] 2012-03-25 08:56:26 PDT
After clearing browser history, about:home will display (4) blank thumbnails in portrait with URL targets about:blank, and (3) in landscape.

Is this a recent intentional change to the top-sites behaviour on about:home?

Yikes, clearing history after creating a new profile also generates various completely blank rows in 'Top Sites' in the AwesomeScreen. This feels like a regression.

Just to clarify: about:home home should show nothing after clearing history. The bug is that thumbnails are being show at all, not that they are blank.

(also adding the entries to the home-screen results in a stringless star-icon)

Regression from bug 721731. Combined view should not include deleted bookmarks/history entries.

Aw, I was really hoping we would get this right the first time, but good catch!

This issue doesn't occur any more on the latest Nightly. There aren't any blank entries in  Awesomelist or blank thumbnails on about:home.
