Previously, middle-clicking a bookmark folder would open all of the bookmarks inside in tabs. With the landing of Places, that functionality is gone. See bug 325781 comment 15.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Middle-click a Places toolbar folder with at least 2 bookmarks in it.

Actual Results:  
The click is completely ignored.

Expected Results:  
Each bookmark opens in its own tab.

Bug 451915 - move Firefox/Places bugs to Firefox/Bookmarks and History. Remove all bugspam from this move by filtering for the string "places-to-b-and-h".

In Thunderbird 3.0b, you do that as follows:
Tools | Message Filters
Make sure the correct account is selected. Click "New"
Conditions: Body   contains   places-to-b-and-h
Change the action to "Delete Message".
Select "Manually Run" from the dropdown at the top.
Click OK.

Select the filter in the list, make sure "Inbox" is selected at the bottom, and click "Run Now". This should delete all the bugspam. You can then delete the filter.
