Thanks for the nifty tool. I used this as the basis for a script to dump or analyze Firefox history. It has worked fine so far except that one time, after doing some reports, I started Firefox and got an error about the bookmarks and history being unavailable because the database was locked. I'm not sure why the script didn't unlock the places.sqlite database on closing, but restarting Firefox fixed the problem, and since then I've run the history analysis script and started Firefox again without error messages.
