All bookmarks should be in exactly one folder. Currently, a bookmark can be cut from a folder and then pasted into a tag (and a history item can be cut from the history list and pasted into a tag), which makes the tag the only location bookmark or history item. When the tag is removed, the item is deleted.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Visit a page. Bookmark it, adding a tag.
2. Visit another page. Bookmark it without tagging it.
3. In the Library, go to the non-tagged page's bookmark. Right-click it and select Cut.
4. Paste the item into the tag you created.
5. Look for a way to access it other than the tag view.
6. Remove the tag from the second page you bookmarked.
Actual Results:  
* After cut-pasting the bookmark into the tag, the tag is the only way you can access it.
* The bookmark disappears if you remove the tag from it.

Expected Results:  
It should not be possible to make a tag the only place a bookmark is located. Either the paste command should be disabled inside a tag when the item that is going to be pasted was cut from a folder, or the item should be moved to Unfiled Bookmarks and tagged.

When an item's only location is a tag, it is always shown as a bookmark by the awesomebar.
This should be fixed when bug 416310 gets fixed.

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.
