User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:28.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/28.0 (Beta/Release)
Build ID: 20131119040203

Steps to reproduce:

This is for the most recent nightly, with australis

first, ensure you have visited many sites, therefore you would expect a scrollbar when displaying the history menu

try to scroll it

Actual results:

history menu scrolls very slow, almost crawling

Expected results:

smooth, responsive scrolling
Component: Untriaged → Toolbars and Customization
Which history menu are you referring to?

There are four possible menus you may be describing:
1) The History subview on the menu panel (click on the three horizontal bars button, choose the History button)
2) The History menu (on Windows, press Alt+S to show it)
3) The History sidebar (on Windows, press Ctrl+H to show it)
4) The Library window (on Windows, press Ctrl+Shift+H to show it)

My guess is that this bug is related to #4, but that hasn't changed with Australis. If so, can you try using mozregression [1] to narrow down when this issue started happening for you?

Marking as P- until this bug is confirmed to be an Australis regression.

I meant #1.

Can't scroll #1 at all, 29.0a1 (2014-01-28), win 7 x64
Ever confirmed: true
Or there shouldn't be any scroll bar while FF is maximized, no matter how big the history is ?

The lack of scrollbar is bug 963480.

If I reduce the resolution so that the scrollbar appears, the scrolling seems to work fine.
