humm we show the url as title on menus, on toolbar for a non titled bookmark we don't show anything, to allow users have a toolbar with only icons and no labels.
The bookmark is still saved with empty title, it's only a view change.

So, this looks wfm, but i'm not sure if on SunOS this has a different behavior due to some underlying bug, can you comment on this please?
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.
