User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; de; rv:1.9b2) Gecko/2007121120 Firefox/3.0b2

creating a bookmark and assigning a tag (/tagname/) to this bookmark, this bookmark doesn't appear in the "tags" folder (tags > /tagname/) that I have copied from the places organizer to the bookmark toolbar

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. copy the tags folder (German: "Schlagwörter") [1] to the bookmark toolbar
   (German: "Lesezeichen-Symbolleiste) by drag & drop
2. bookmark any URL, e.g. http://www.heise.de/newsticker/meldung/100806 and
   assign a tag to this bookmark e.g. "toread" [2]
3. check the "tags" folder ("tags" > "toread") in the bookmark toolbar and
   compare the contents to the tags folder in the places organizer 
   (German: "Orte-Verwalgung" > "Schlagwörter" > "toread")
Actual Results:  
The tags folder in the bookmark toolbar does _not_ contain the created bookmark. The tags folder in the places organizer does.

Expected Results:  
Both the places organizer and the bookmark toolbar folder "tags" should contain the new bookmark.

___
[1]:  I use the German version of Firefox, thus I don't know exactly the English terms for some features of Firefox, the features that I have used I translated as following:
  * "Orte-Verwaltung" - "places organizer"
  * "Lesezeichen-Symbolleiste" - "bookmark toolbar"

[2]:  the tag that I have used in this example "toread" has already existed before I copied the tags folder to the bookmark toolbar

Summary: no bookmarks appear in folder "tags" copied to the bookmark toolbar → copied tags folders should be shortcuts and report added bookmarks dynamically

this is WFM actually i can copy Tags or a single tag folder to the bookmarks toolbar and it appear updating correctly
Re-reading bug 409892 it appear more like a request to support tags on tags, so i'm marking this WFM for the original report.

I still have this bug. I recorded two videos to explain it.

If I remove a bookmark from that tag, it is the same story. That tag is only refreshed if I restart firefox.

By the way... there is the same behaviour with a tag in toolbar (like shown in video) and that reference in menubar [Bookmarks --> Bookmarks-Toolbar --> 'example'].
Maybe it's a cache that needs to be refreshed?

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.
