Description

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.

Summary: Empty thumbnail (about:blank) entries on about:home after clearing history → Empty thumbnail (about:blank) entries on about:home and blank rows added to Top Sites after clearing history
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!
