ah, so they did keep that profile file the same. Is the same true with

Is this true? Firefox keeps history in the same file as bookmarks?
That is sooooooooooooooo bad! I want to copy one, but *not* anything
from the other! The export/import steps are the only way, then?

Yes, that's why the places.sqllite file grows to a large size. If one
backsup to HTML, renames their existing places.sqllite file and then
restore from the HTML, that cleans out the history. As an example, I had
noticed that my places.sqllite file had grown to 70MB+ but once I backed
up and restored it dropped back to 10MBs.

I thought Clear History and/or Clear Recent History took care of all

I believe it does.. My places.sqlite file is never above 10 MB.

Someone said that the menu option does *not* compress the places.sqlite file. So the file may not reduce too much, although it has no cache. I found this strange, but I cannot easily test it (lazyness) and I believed what was said. Manually deleting the file was the better solution.
