Ability to sort Subscriptions (in Places) by date of post (unsorted?)

Feeds/blogs are (almost) always sorted by the date of the post, with the newest on top.

There needs to be a way in Places/Subscriptions(*) to sort the opened feed folder by the date of the post. Could the menuitem "View / Unsorted" be (mis)used for this?

(*) The word "Subscriptions" is a bit tricky to type (the "ipti" part). ;-)

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Places, select Subscriptions
2. Open a feed's folder (click the + in front of its name)
3. Click on a column header (e.g., Title, Location)
4. Try to get back the original sort order.



Expected Results:  
Original sort order (by post date, descending(*)) can be restored (without closing an reopening Places and/or Firefox).

(*) With dates, is descending with the newest ("largest") date on top, or is it ascending???

Initial work on adding a pubDate annotation to livemarks.

Doesn't check RDF feeds for a pubdate.

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.
