<smaug> which file is used nowadays to store locationbar's autocomplete data? autocomplete stopped working after I started to build places.
<smaug> I think I had the problem earlier when testing places, but don't remember how I solved it
<dietrich> sspitzerMsgMe: do you know if there's a bug on smaug's problem? ^^
<mconnor> formhistory.sqlite?
<sspitzerMsgMe> dietrich:  let me look for something abouts smaug's issue.
<dietrich> sspitzerMsgMe: url bar autocomplete is working a-ok for me

the answer to smaug's question is places.sqlite, as we query that for the autocomplete results.

see http://lxr.mozilla.org/seamonkey/source/toolkit/components/places/src/nsNavHistoryAutoComplete.cpp#310

Olli, were you seeing the problem after migrating from a firefox 2 profile?
Yes, originally, but I did a clobber build now and things seem to be ok
again. It was just earlier (maybe around the time of ff3a2) when I 
really had to delete some files in the profile to get things working 
again.
But I'll test this some more, and close as WFM if I can't find
any problems.
Summary: after migration to place → after migration to places build, url bar autocomplete stopped working?
fwiw, I did a little smoke testing, and thinks look ok.  specifically:

1) create a new fx 2 profile
2) visit a few pages to build up some history
3) test url bar autocomplete (both search and non-searching, arrow up / down)
4) exit fx 2
5) start up trunk, migrate to places
6) re-test url bar autocomplete (both search and non-searching, arrow up / down)

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.
