Ah thanks. Yes, I do. So SM v2.10.1 uses 30 days by default. That's good
enough for me then. If I need to change that, then I will get that
PrefBar button. :)

No, no, no!

30 days is the default in PrefBar's Expire History Button.

SM 2.10.1 uses the Mozilla Toolkit, which only controls the size of the
history SQLite database, purging old entries when the database gets full.

Uh oh. I think v2.48 broke this PrefBar's expire history button. It was
fine with v2.46 and earlier. Can any other PrefBar users please kindly
confirm this too on theirs too? :(

Thank you in advance. :)

You quoted newsgroup messages that are 5 years old.  Since then, I moved
the Expire History button from Eabled Items in PrefBar to Available
Items.  I then installed the "Expire history by days" extension.

There is good news and bad news about "Expire history by days".  The bad
news is that the current version (1.3.1) cannot work with SeaMonkey and
that the last "good" version (1.2.0) had compatibility problems and is
no longer available.  The good news is that I ran 1.2.0 through the
converter at <http://addonconverter.fotokraina.com/> and archived the
results.  If you want a copy, let me know.

Oh wow, I didn't know you left PreBar button. I reported this issue in
https://www.mozdev.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=26405 and got an answer. It
looks like MANY of its features are going away because of Firefox v57 as
shown in http://prefbar.tuxfamily.org/migration.html ... :(

Do you or don't you want the converted "Expire history by days" extension?

Oops. Yes, please post it online so others and I can get it. :)
