When searching for a bookmark in Manage Bookmarks, Firefox doesn't show the folder containing the bookmark(s) that were found. It would be helpful if Firefox showed the folder where the existing bookmarks are found.
Thanks for submitting an idea to the Mozilla Connect community! Your idea is now open to votes (aka kudos) and comments.
I sometimes forget where I put a bookmark. I can detect its existence by using the search function on the Manage Bookmarks page, but that doesn't help me to find it. It should be a simple fix to add a column on the search results to display the folder where the bookmark resides. Thanks for listening.
Bookmarks...can you add a feature that will let me search my bookmarks? I have a LOT of bookmarks and some I visit only every now and then. Being able to search for them in all those bookmark folders would be pretty handy. Thank you.
Showing the folders the various links found by the search will train myself to remember how I've been organized and maybe help me to re-organize the links.If the "Show in Folder" already proves the availability of the data, it should be an easy programming effort to display it within a column.
@noel_envoideWhich version of FF are you using? In FF 102.0.1 under Windows 10, I don't see anything like the context menu you posted. What I see is attached. The closest I can find to "Bookmark path" is "Show in Folder". This does exactly what it says, losing my search results.
Ideally, the search window should have an additional column, "Path", which would show the path to the bookmark in the bookmarks directory tree, or a corresponding "Path" field in the properties pane below the results list. I have a lot of bookmarks and often wind up with duplicates which I filed differently, having this information available *in the search window* would make it a lot easier for me to prune these out.
@jscher2000Thanks for the link to BMS+2 I will try it out.
P.S: @noel_envoide After trying it out, I now see that your screenshot was from the BMS+2 context menu, not FF's.
Unfortunately, I don't find BMS+2 very helpful, since it only replaces the FF Bookmarks Pane and not the "Manage Bookmarks" window. I depend on the latter to order the search results by URL, which makes it easier to find duplicate or overlapping bookmarks.
Yes *please* include folders in bookmark searches *and* include a folder location column in bookmark search results. I have multiple duplicate folders all over the place in FireFox and can't find or consolidate them because it i too much of a time consuming pain in the neck to page through thousands of folders and bookmarks.
Especially about returning the location of the bookmark. If my bookmarks were a mess, without the search also returning the folders where they were, the only way to access them would be via the search, because I wouldn't know where to find them.
One of the other pages/requests for "folder" in bookmark search .
Reasonable request, have an upvote.
