If the user opens the bookmark manager and does a search with a keyword, if the scope of the search is changed (such as from the entire bookmark to current collection only), the keyword being used is replaced by "Search in Bookmarks" or "Search in <folder name>".

We should leave the keyword in place when changing scope so that the user does not have to re-enter it.

Steps to Reproduce
1. Open Bookmark Manager.
2. Select a folder in the manager.
3. In the search box, which should default to searching the entire bookmarks file, type in "Firefox".
4. Click on the dropdown in the Search box and select "Current Collection Only".

Result: The "Firefox" keyword is replaced by "Search in <folder name>". The user needs to re-enter the search term.

This sounds like an old problem where much of the code has changed around it and obviated it...?  WFM on Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.5; en-US; rv:1.9.0.6) Gecko/2009011912 Firefox/3.0.6.

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.
