I'm not able to reproduce. The STR is ambiguous. Can you please provide a more details set of steps?

How many tabs? And do you mean you used the "Bookmark all tabs" option?

How did you delete the bookmarks? Did you select the folder and delete that, or did you select the group of bookmarks?
I see the same with Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.5; en-US; rv:1.9pre) Gecko/2008040904 Minefield/3.0pre

The errors I see with my debug builds are multiple instances of:

###!!! ASSERTION: EndUpdateBatch without a begin: 'mBatchInProgress', file /Shared/Mozilla/Trunk/mozilla/toolkit/components/places/src/nsNavHistoryResult.cpp, line 2554

Steps to reproduce:
1. Press Cmd+D or star twice to open the bookmark contextual dialog
2. Add some tags
3. Remove a tag

While removing a tag the above assertion is listed multiple times within the console.
OS: Linux → All
Hardware: PC → All

Henrik, a clarification please: When you say "Remove a tag", do you mean that you delete any tag in the tags field of the dialog? Do you get the assertion immediately, or after moving focus to a different control?
I only remove one of the given tags and have to move the focus to another control. But what I see now is, that I have forgotten a step. Please open the library in parallel and place it into the background before you remove one of the given tags. Then the assertion should be really visible to you.

See also bug 405551 for some discussion.

This patch removes the unnecessary batch update. It also changes an assertion to a warning (consistent w/ the other warning there), which allows the xpcshell in debug mode to complete correctly (what i was seeing here:

All tests pass with this patch.

verified fixed using Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.5; en-US; rv:1.9pre) Gecko/2008042814 Firefox/3.0pre (Debug Build) - i don't see the assertion anymore, thx dietrich :)
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.

Component: Places → Bookmarks & History
QA Contact: places → bookmarks
