possible patch in bug 405010
for more info see bug 405010 discussion. There's a problem here since in a sorted view the drop position is somehow wrong, remembering always the sorting will make users think that D&D is not working correctly. IMHO, we should persist the sorting order in the Library when a user moves through folders, but not persist it across sessions, this way when the user opens the Library the D&D is correctly working, and he will soon understand the difference between a sorted view and an unsorted one. Mano: That said, I don't think there's much value in persisting the sort method anyway. If we cannot get sensible d&d support when the view is sorted, it'd be fine not to persist sorting for the time being.
the last was not a request for Mano, but a comment from him (sorry i forgot the quote)

this should not block, or at least needs definition, see comment #3
I agree, doesn't block, might even be WONTFIX. Changing a view shouldn't actually permanently alter the way that the items are represented in the menu, IMO.

this is not about persisting the sorting in menu, is about persisting the sorting when moving between folders into the Library...
yep, this should be library only and without session persistence of course. so, will there be a update [(UI-)review] on this issue in the near future? :-)

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. Gerv
