Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1028190
Pages deleted from history appear on new tab screen until restart
Last modified: 2015-02-17 14:08:03 EST
This bug has implications for personal privacy.
Steps to reproduce:
* Open a new tab (default version).
* Note one of the recently-visited web pages there.
* Go to History -> Show All History.
* Delete the web page you noted from your history.
* Open another new tab.
* The problem is that a thumbnail of the the deleted-from-history web page still appears on the new tab page.
* Workaround 1: Restart the browser after deleting from history using the above steps.
* Workaround 2: Hover over offending web page and click the X to remove it from the new tab page.
* Workaround 3: Use the History -> "Clear Recent History..." menu item, which does not have this problem.
Version tested: firefox-25.0-3.fc19.x86_64
This message is a notice that Fedora 19 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 19. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now this bug will
be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '19'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 19 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 19 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-01-06. Fedora 19 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
