Open Bookmarks Manager Actual result: The sort order is Sort by Title Expected result: The sort order is unsorted
I can't reproduce this with Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9a5pre) Gecko/20070520 Minefield/3.0a5pre Every time when I close the bookmarks manager and/or restart Firefox, it defaults to Unsorted. It appears to have no memory or own will, at least not here. :)
I see the same as Ria, the setting always goes back to 'Unsorted'. Setting any of the other options do not seem to retain the setting. Not sure if the 'View' setting should persist, or if this is intended behavior.

In my case I used it with Unsorted before Places. But after Places was enabled with the imported bookmark, it was changed to Sort By Title and my choice for the other order doesn't persist for another session.
OK I found a workaround, the View menu in Bookmarks Manager doesn't work but sort done by clicking on the "Title" in the columns is remembered after restart.
I can confirm what KL writes: I return to "View | Sort By Title" (as that's what I did with the column headers) each time, even when I switch the "view | sort by" using the view menu.

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. Gerv
