Doesn't block, would take a patch.

Probably the easiest way to fix this would be to disable the move item from the context menu, yes?

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.

Still broken.
Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.6; pl; rv:1.9.3a4pre) Gecko/20100322 Minefield/3.7a4pre

The "Move" item is no longer available in the context menu, but it is still available in the "Organize" menu.
Still unable to move history item to bookmarks folders by using Move from the Library Organize menu on Firefox 3.6.23:

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.2.23) Gecko/20110920 Firefox/3.6.23

Moving bookmarks with drag and drop doesn't work in the Firefox 10.0, in my system - it is needed to do cut and paste, which is annoying
IMO, "moving" a history item to any bookmark section is not a valid behaviour, hence  "Move" should not be an available option for history items (it should be  removed from "Organize" menu).

Moving bookmarks with drag and drop WFM on Firefox 3.6.26:
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; en-US; rv:1.9.2.:26) Gecko/20120128 Firefox/3.6.26
@catsuntiger@sapo.pt: on which platform dyou can't move bookmarks with drag and drop?
