Meta bug to keep track of efforts related to enabling histories in Thunderbird as appears useful to get closer to the Firefox functionality, and to add the respective backend and UI items.

(Quoting rsx11m from bug 1020339 comment #11)
> 
>  - Browsing history is covered by the current patch.
>  - Download history is deleted when exiting Thunderbird.
>  - Location bar history isn't applicable due to the lack of such a bar.
>  - Saved form history is enabled per bug 510378 and may be relevant.
> 
> The next items shouldn't be kept in Places and thus aren't affected:
> 
>  - Cache and Cookies are already available.
>  - Offline Website Data, I don't think offline-apps are supported... are they?
>    If yes, they are enabled by default without prompt now per bug 892488.
>  - Saved passwords, that probably wouldn't change by using Places elsewhere.
>  - Authenticated Sessions, may not be applicable (remote content in a message?).
>  - Site preferences, not sure how those may be used (downloading remote content?).

Other items mentioned was implementing private browsing in Thunderbird, allowing to clear history on exit for all items as in Firefox, and porting the initially collapsed list of options unless the user decides to customize individual history items.
