Update:

I created a complete new profile from scratch, and History still wasn't working. Just for the heck of it, I searched all my drives for sites.dat and found a copy of the file that was a couple weeks old (I'd temporarily switched my Profile path for a non-related issue back then). After I copied the two-week-old sites.dat over the sites.dat in my current profile and restarted Avant, all of the history from the older file is shown. Since then, I'm no longer losing the contents of History, including the earlier history and all the sites I've visited since copying the older sites.dat, even after closing and restarting Avant several times. In other words, History is working normally again since I copied the older sites.dat.

The oddest part of this is that I had previously deleted sites.dat from my current profile, and even when Avant created a new, empty sites.dat, History still didn't work properly. It seems as though the problem might have been related to some kind of corruption of the sites.dat file, but you'd think that when Avant created a new one, that would have been resolved. Something related to the profile and/or the History function is flaky.
