When I enter

ls -la

in bash shell then approx 500 files are displayed very fast.
When I try to scroll back in the terminal window only the last

How can I increase the number of stored bash history lines?

You are confused. Your shell's history and your terminal's
scroll back buffer are different things. For xterm, see the -sl
option.
