Description Christopher Beland 2013-05-31 17:01:06 EDT
To reproduce::
* History -> Show All History -> Right click and delete all time periods
* Open a new tab
* Problem: Notice that some of the web page thumbnails shown are from the deleted history
* Workaround: Restart firefox

If I clean out my history with History -> Time range to clear: Everything, then all the old thumbnails are gone immediately.

Tested with: firefox-21.0-3.fc18.x86_64
