The menu item, as it is, does what the menu item describes; it takes you to the library with Bookmark organisation as the focused process. There is a menu item under History which take the user to Library with history as focus.  
Mh. But also "Show all history" is not misleading? You can show history with CNTRL+H. In library you can also easily edit and/or add them to bookmark folders.

Should I propose to rename also it to Organize History/Bookmarks?

this is being overwhelmed by bug 423309
as said actual names are linked to the action the user is going to do.

I don't think it should be renamed. For starters, there is a such thing a being to detailed. A drop menu item needs to be concise. Changing it would extend the menu box out, making it too wide and introducing more blank space out to the sides of the other entries.
WONTFIX per the analysis in comment #1.

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
