(Depends on 2 open bugs)


For bug #399664 (not yet landed, but in gavin's review queue), I've got three hacks (see below) I'd like to figure out how to remove.

1)  "faking" the ellipsis.

bug #404427 ("for description elements, crop only works if you use the value attribute")
bug #312156 ("implement text-overflow: ellipsis from CSS3 text")

+          setTimeout(function(self) { self._setUpEllipsis(aScrollBoxObject, aDescriptionElement, aEllipsis); }, 0, this);

2) bug #405913 – wanted: richlisttree

+            if (!this._urlOverflowEllipsis.boxObject.width ||
+                !this._titleOverflowEllipsis.boxObject.width)
+              setTimeout(function(self) { self._adjustWidth(); }, 0, this);
+            else
+              this._adjustWidth();

3)  bug #401939 – support "rows" attribute on richlistbox (like we do on listbox)

+          // until we have support for "rows" on richlistbox,
+          // determine the height dynamically.  (see bug #401939)
+          if (!this._rowHeight && this.richlistbox.childNodes.length)
+            this._rowHeight = this.richlistbox.childNodes[0].boxObject.height;
+          var height = this._rowHeight * rows;
+          if (this._rowHeight && this.richlistbox.height != height)
+            this.richlistbox.height = height;
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.

Component: Places → Bookmarks & History
QA Contact: places → bookmarks
I think we're either happy with everything as it stands or waiting on new technology for the address bar. Therefore I think we can just close this off, as it doesn't feel like a useful meta.
