If you open the history sidebar and choode to view by site, the urls are just all listed, there is no organisation by site at all. Viewing by date and site does work as expected, though I appear to have a couple of broken entries like "false;".

All OS as per comment 1. I'm also seeing an issue with the scrollbar not working right but that may be more cocoa widget related.

For some reason I was under the impression that this was supposed to display a folder view like by date and site does so comment 1 actually shows this working as it should. However mine is still not right, it's just listing the pages in title order.

 * Sort By Site does not group, it just sorts.
 * Sorts, by title.
 * In Fx2 too, and that's not even filed.

I think we should either change this to actually group by host or rename the menu-item to "Sort By Title".

I quite often find myself having to dig through all the date groups to find a result from a given site so I'd vote for proper grouping by site.

That said I was surprised to just realise that there wasnt just a sort by name option, but then I think you can just search in that instance.

Is there a bug to implement Sort By Title (the latter option)?

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.
