I got a notice popup that 46.0 had downloaded and was ready to install. I quit Firefox and restarted, but it froze for a couple of minutes. I forced quit and restarted. Then all my history was gone. I'm running Mac 10.8.5. I did not make any intentional adjustments to settings - just quit and restarted. Thanks!
