Did you ever delete a live bookmark? Currently, not all information gets deleted and if another folder gets the same ID, it will get those properties. If so, this is bug 327162.

Posted patch PatchSplinter Review
This patch makes it so we don't re-use folder IDs, which should make this not happen, even if we keep forgetting to reset the livemark annotations and icons.

You'll need a new bookmarks_history.sqlite created with a new version for this to work. Fixing it for old profiles is bug 327162.

Jim: Are you sure you actually created a brand new bookmarks_history.sqlite? You are creating a brand new profile and the first thing you do is create a new bookmarks folder, and it has the livemarks icon? I've never heard of this, even before this fix, those steps would not give you a livemark icon.

Sorry my bad. Yes this is fine with a new profile.

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.
