query that results in a flat unfiltered list of bookmarks is not possible (without hackery)

See GetSimpleBookmarksQueryFolder().  unless you do some sort of hack (like specify maxResults of 99999 or a begin time of 0), you'll get a bookmarks query folder (nsNavHistoryFolderResultNode) and not a nsNavHistoryContainerResultNode with all the bookmark items.

this came up while working on bug #387996
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.
