when a user types in the location bar, the dropdown that shows matching results should highlight the parts of the URI and title that contain the search terms.

Since we are starting to reach consensus on a spotlight style formatting for location bar auto-complete, should we wontfix this bug?  Or at least hold off on further work until we decide which way we want to go?
Based on discussions relating to the design of the autocomplete in the location bar (bug #393508), I propose we wontfix this one.

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.
