Status in Ubuntu Manual: In Progress

Bug description:
Rev. 788
Ch. 3, § "History", p. 59 (PDF p. 61)
Type: style

Manual has:
To see history from an older time, press Ctrl+H.

This isn't wrong, but, to me at least, it seems a bit like a machine translation. I'd suggest "earlier", and adding "your":
To see your history from an earlier time, press Ctrl+H.

As a side note, does anyone else have their home page open if they press Ctrl+H while the History menu is open? Since the previous paragraph instructs the reader to open the History menu, this behaviour, if not limited to me, could surprise some readers.
