I'm not very familiar with the new places stuff, but when I saw that the tooltip for the star was "Bookmark this page", I expected it to actually bookmark the page instead of whatever it actually does. Also, when a page is starred, the tooltip shows "Edit this bookmark", when it isn't an actual bookmark. This is confusing.

Some other name should be used for things that are starred but aren't bookmarked. "Star this page", "Tag this page", dunno...

Actually, it *does* bookmark the page. They don't show up at the moment, but that's because we're not finished with the Places Organizer.

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.
