I noticed yesterday that firefox offers both modes, a sidebar (Ctrl-H) *and* a 
separate window (Ctrl-Shift-H).  The latter makes it easy to e.g. remove 
entries from the history selectively (select + del), while the former is more 
simple and convenient for the common case of quickly browsing the history.

Although a history in a tab can be placed alongside the main browsing tab, I 
think a sidebar history is more user-friendly for the latter use case.

Have a nice day,
