If e.g. there were no entries in '2 days ago' the new entries in there are not accessible until a restart of mozilla Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. create new global history 2. surf some pages 3. wait till next day Actual Results: Yesterday is not accessible Expected Results: Yesterday should contain the pages of the last day

actually, you shouldn't need to restart - you should just be able to collapse and re-expand the "Yesterday" or "Today" folders, and the search is done in real time... can someone confirm the behavior is actually as described? (by the way, the related bug has to do with pages /expiring/, not displaying in the UI)
I just tried this out with build 2001061823 on Windows 95. I first took a look at the contents of my history in the sidebar. Both today and yesterday looked correct. I then set my system time to 11:58 PM, and amused myself elsewhere for two minutes. After my computer thought that midnight had passed, I looked at my sidebar again, expanded Today, and saw that it was empty, expanded yesterday, and saw the things which had previously been in today So far, so good. I then proceeded to browse to a couple of sites that I was certain I had not visited at all recently, http://luddite.com and http://snes9x.com I then checked my today and yesterday history thingies in the sidebar. today was still empty, and both http://luddite.com and http://snes9x.com had been added to the yesterday category
Can I ask how you amused yourself for those two minutes?
um... well, I spun around on my spinny office chair a couple times, went to get a drink of water from the cooler down the hall, and then came back and stared at my telephone for a bit, hoping it would ring. It didnt. If I knew all that was so important for reproducing the bug, I would have mentioned it in the first place :)
were the dates for the sites you visited current? I'm curious if we're miscalculating the visit date.
ooh! very good point! If Mozilla is using the dates that the servers sent me in their headers, then the behavior I observed was exactly correct... but if Mozilla is supposed to be using my computer's system date then it was wrong. Ill try the same test again, next time I am actually using Mozilla when real-life midnight rolls around and the pages I pull will actually be giving me post-midnight dates, but I dont know when that will be, as I am terribly sleepy at the moment
actually, that wasn't quite what I was thinking :) global history doesn't have access to the date sent by the server - it just uses the "current" time - but what we basically do is keep a timestamp that we update every so often (every few seconds) - but maybe that update is broken or something.
in keeping with the movement to "keep the unconfirms under control" I'd like to suggest that we confirm this bug as no one is really objecting and its falling off the radar just floating in the unconfirmed void. :-)
Hmmm, I had a history with many entries for 'today' and none for 'yesterday'. I let it sit open over night and then took a look at it the next day. 'Today' would not update even after I expanded and collapsed the twisty - there was no twisty for 'yesterday'. Only after I closed the Global History window did things properly update. So the bug is that the UI is not updating(because evidently the realtime search isn't triggered) _even_ after you collapse/expand the twisty. I still think it's a bug even if it did work after clicking the twisty. confirming

Hi, I can confirm this bug also on Mozila 1.3b Gecko/20030210 on Windows XP sp1. One day after soem surfing I had left my browser open, on next morrning I just closed accidentaly the browser and when I opened it again there were no any of thouse links what I had visited last evening. All links what I have seen before, probably during the day were there, but those from last start of mozilla were gone.
