When I search for bookmarks the search results only show the bookmarks.

But I would also like to see folders in the results.

E.g. I have a folder named "weather websites".

If I search for "weather", I would like to see this folder in the search results.

Then I could click on or expand that folder, to see all the bookmarks inside.

Search option in 'Add bookmark' window to search for a specific folder

Search option in 'Add bookmark' window to search for a specific folder name where the bookmark can be added. Scrolling through the folders to select the right folder the bookmark to be added in is tedious.

Yes, please – I need this too!  I submitted this request as a question in the support forum.  That conversation is at:

Searching bookmark folders would make my life so much more efficient -- please create this feature!

There is a Firefox Extension which does this called "Bookmark Search Plus 2". After adding it, use CTRL+Q to quickly access it. My only gripe, and a small one at that, is that after bringing it up, you have to manually click in it's search area instead of it just letting you type your query after it comes up.

Mozilla, why in the heck do we need an extension to search our bookmarks for a folder name?

Allow bookmark folders to show in search results of the Firefox bookmark manager / library.

Sometimes I find myself creating a duplicate/similar bookmark folder because I forgot the old one/s existed.

I think adding bookmark folders in search results would help users find bookmark folders or bookmarks they are looking for faster.

Yes, please add the folder location. When I search I find the link OK but never know where it is stored to more easily find it again later or to better organize all my bookmarks; especially in the Library view.
