Is this bug referring just to search in the places organizer, or also to search in the location bar? I ask because I am going to file a bug on searching bookmarks by title (if the title has been changed by the user) which currently does not happen in the location bar (but does in the Bookmarks sidebar and the Places Organizer) and would like to know which bug is most helpful to make it blocking/depends on.

I'm guessing this is also referring to location bar autocomplete by seeing the dependencies. I filed bug 405645 earlier to search bookmarks by title in the autocomplete results.

note that the location bar portion of this is fixed. this bug only covers unified (history+unvisited bookmarks) search in the organizer now.

renominating for review by drivers: i have seen very few complaints about or requests for this. considering it's a new feature, it's hardly seems blocking-worthy at this stage.

Perhaps I am not fully understanding the nature of this bug, but when I use:
History->Show All History the Library opens and the search box has: 
"Search in Bookmarks" - 

Was the intent to to show Search Bookmarks & History, or is there a different bug covering changing the function of the Search box in the Library for 'History' ?

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.
