User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9) Gecko/2008061721 Fedora/3.0-1.fc10 Firefox/3.0

Attempting to load the book-marks side-bar or organiser, I get an exception:

Error: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x8000ffff (NS_ERROR_UNEXPECTED) [nsINavHistoryContainerResultNode.hasChildren]"  nsresult: "0x8000ffff (NS_ERROR_UNEXPECTED)"  location: "JS frame :: chrome://browser/content/places/treeView.js :: PTV_isContainerEmpty :: line 975"  data: no]
Source File: chrome://browser/content/places/treeView.js
Line: 975

The book-marks sidebar and organiser come up blank and non-functional (don't response to right-clicks, drag-n-drop etc).

Attempting to export bookmarks as HTML fails with a similar exception:

Error: uncaught exception: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x8000ffff (NS_ERROR_UNEXPECTED) [nsIPlacesImportExportService.exportHTMLToFile]"  nsresult: "0x8000ffff (NS_ERROR_UNEXPECTED)"  location: "JS frame :: chrome://browser/content/places/places.js :: PO_exportBookmarks :: line 381"  data: no]

Backup & restore of .json file results in "Unable to process back-up file".

Bookmarks menu and toolbar still work just fine.

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.
