Web History deleting

Hi everyone,

I was told that Firefox retains web history for as long as either I retain it or it exceeds the maximum page limit. Is this true?

My follow up to that is if my current max pages in prefs.js is 96074, and the page size is 32,768, then does that mean my max places.sqlite file size is ~3GB?

If nothing is deleted, then I shouldn't have any Freelist pages to contribute to that page count right?

Any help is appreciated.
