with a new profile (or a new livemark) the first time we check the expired time we assert.

WARNING: NS_ENSURE_TRUE(NS_SUCCEEDED(rv)) failed: file c:/builds/trunk-no-places
/mozilla/toolkit/components/places/src/nsAnnotationService.cpp, line 753

this is a trivial bug, but when there isn't a problem, we shouldn't warn or assert.

What's going on is:

nsAnnotationService::GetPageAnnotationInt64() calls StartGetAnnotationFromURI(); with livemark/expiration, but that annotation isn't in the db yet, so StartGetAnnotationFromURI() returns NS_ERROR_NOT_AVAILABLE (because hasResult is false).

Then in GetPageAnnotationInt64 we have NS_ENSURE_SUCCESS(rv,rv);

Note, the livemark service wraps it's call with try / catch, and in the catch:

"// This livemark has never been loaded, since it has no expire time."

in nsAnnotationService, other callers to StartGetAnnotationFromURI() just do:

if NS_FAILED(rv))
  return rv;

Perhaps we should do the same, but in StartGetAnnotationFromURI() if mDBGetAnnotationFromURI->ExecuteStep() fails, then we assert (but not if we just don't have any results).

The livemark stuff was a straight port of the C++, but no excuses, that code is no good.

Why do we have getters that throw when they don't have a result? Why don't we just return null, and throw exceptions when something truly exceptional occurs?
Hear, hear -- or use undefined, if null is used for some defined state (or if undefined is more in keeping with other JS interfaces).

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.
