Rather than using the Library to edit bookmarks in a separate window I find it convenient to open it in a tab using chrome://browser/content/places/places.xul 

I think it would be useful to expose this to most users by having a middle click event for the menu option which opens a new tab with the url "chrome://browser/content/places/places.xul"

We don't really want to open chrome URLs in tabs, for a few different reasons, including fuzzing the lines between privileged/unprivileged content, and minimizing stepping-stone attacks using XSS to get full access.  We haven't yet disabled this completely, but we're not going to enable this on purpose.

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.
