The Go menu was renamed to History and the recently visted pages list in the top level of this menu was removed. It should have been replaced with a similar sub menu such as the recently closed tabs menu, but it was not. To duplicate this function in the current version, the user must do History > View All History... > double click item > alt tab back to history window > close history window.  Instead of Go > (history item). The effort to reproduce this functionaly has been changed to be three times what it used to be, and be much more intrusive and dissorienting.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click History menu item
Actual Results:  
No top-level list or sub menu of recently viewed pages

Expected Results:  
No top-level list or sub menu of recently viewed pages
I believe you are filing this bug for trunk?
In that case change the component from Bookmarks to Places and the Version field to Trunk.

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.
