In Library window, when I press Ctrl+F then search, the search scope selector and search results are not consistent.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Choose Bookmarks -> Organize Bookmarks, then Library window appears.
2. Press Ctrl+F in the Library window.
3. Input search term.

Actual Results:  
All Bookmarks is selected in search scope selector.
But search result seems to be searched in history, not in bookmarks.

Expected Results:  
Search scope selector and search result should be consistent.
this happens with CTRL-F while using the mouse results are consistent, All Bookmarks is selected in the left pane while the real scope appear to be History.

i can confirm this.
Ever confirmed: true

This works for me on Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.5; en-US; rv: Gecko/2009011912 Firefox/3.0.6.  Is anyone still having this problem?
reporter was on windows, can we get confirmation on a contemporary windows build?

Thanks for reporting back.

Hmm, yes, this looks like a Mac problem.  The key shortcuts of the OrganizerCommand_find:all and OrganizerCommand_find:current commands are crossed somewhere -- it's impossible to use find:all from my keyboard, only find:current, so when I do Cmd+F from the All Bookmarks folder, it does find:current and looks like it works.  The find:current command in the menubar has its accesskey set to Cmd+F.  When I manually call PlacesSearchBox.findAll(), I can reproduce the problem.  I'm going through the spaghetti of Mac #includes and menubars now.

Dietrich, the fix to this bug looks simple -- we're calling content.applyFilter(filterString) without any folders when PlacesSearchBox.filterCollection == "all".  But part 2 of bug 451151 raises the question of why there's even an "all" case at... all, instead of just using "bookmarks".  findAll() is the only place that sets filterString = "all".

To clarify, what should the OrganizerCommand_find:all command do?  What does "all" mean?  Either we need to add an "all" (history + bookmarks) scope button, or change the command so that only one of bookmarks or history is searched.

Spun off OS X key issue to bug 479532.

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.
