Description

10 years ago
If a user copies a special bookmark folder (like "Most Visited") and then pastes into another folder in the Library, two copies of the special folder will appear in the view. If the user refreshes the view (by changing folders or closing and reopening the Library) only one folder will be displayed. 

We should only show the single, actual, folder when pasting after the paste.

Steps to Reproduce
1. Open the Library
2. Right click on "Most Visited" special folder under the Bookmarks Toolbar and choose "copy" from the context menu.
3. Go to another folder and select the folder.
4. In the right pane, showing folder contents, right click and choose "paste" from the context menu.

Result: Two folders showing "Most Visited" will appear.

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.
