seen on: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.4; en-US; rv:1.9b3pre) Gecko/2007121904 Minefield/3.0b3pre and the equivalent Win XP build.


1) open the Library, open the Bookmarks Toolbar folder, leave the Library open.
2) Go back to the browser and change the name of a folder on the Bookmark toolbar.

tested results:
the item is not updated in Library sidebar until the library is closed and reopened. However, the folder name edit is updated in the main view.

expected results:
The folder name changes in all locations, including the sidebar.

Confirmed.  Both by myself (on a Mac) and bug #409060 which is a dupe and a user on Windows.

Folder name changes made anywhere should dynamically update everywhere that folder appears. 

Note: closing then re-opening the Library does reflect the changed folder name in the sidebar.

drivers: this should block. can't ship with live-update broken.

update visible items only when ExcludeItems is true

this i caused by excludeItems

a partial fix to this was already checked-in in 398295 then backed out to investigate on a TS regression, then it would have been checked-in with 399866 but still not done.

I've changed that so it still don't update non visible items, but updates visible ones

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.
