Probably related to bug 329233, but I thought it might be better to submit them separately
Invalid as per bug 329068. Sidebars have been removed atm in Places-enabled builds, but discussion as to what kind of form (if any) they should take are ongoing.

It looks like "Places" does have the bookmarks functionality. Now all that is needed is to make the places window a dockable widget, and also for Ctrl-B to toggle its visibility, like it does in Firefox 1.5 (or like F9 does in Mozilla Classic)... Instead of toggling the bookmarks sidebar, it could toggle the places sidebar, but select the "bookmarks menu" of places. The tree view for choosing which "places" you want to select is a waste of valuable horizontal space. The Mozilla Classic approach allowed you to select the different "places" (bookmarks, history, whatever) as tabs in a tabbed widget.
We won't be implementing bookmarks sidebars by default, they're not part of the new UE spec: http://wiki.mozilla.org/Places:User_Interface ... however, we do have something planned that will mimic much of the sidebar's ease of access/utility, a new places popup. This will come in fx2a2. Read the UE spec for more info, or track 329180/329179.

I hate popups. I wish it could also be dockable on the side.
Ben, the whole point of this bug was to have a UI that wasn't a popup for main bookmark usage and management. Many of us use the sidebar because it's not a change of window. The new Places UI spec makes us change window focus, and have parts of what we're doing covered up by the places window. It's terribly less usable than the old spec. I thought the point was to increase usability.

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. Gerv
