Great idea. I think this would be made even better if search by folder functionality were added to the "Bookmark this page" function. It would really help to keep things organized for those of us with many bookmarks.
Search results in the bookmarks library page and in the sidebar should also show bookmark folders
As of now, searching for phrases in those pages just shows bookmarks. While I can right click a bookmark and click "Show in folder" to instantly navigate to the folder containing said bookmark, I would like the ability to see folders in the search results along with bookmarks that contain whatever phrases you search for.
managing bookmarks: search result: include show parent folder of a bookmark
... (maybe I just cant figure out how to do it, but)
... when searching for a bookmark by *name*, if it is found, Firefox will not show me where the bookmark actually is (assuming I have placed it in a somewhat deeper custom folder hierarchy)
... is there a (simple) fix, like displaying an (optional additional) column for the next higher parent directory of the bookmark ?
pls, see screenshot
Peace, thanks, regards!
I've been using Firefox for years. My bookmarks, when saved via HTML, is over 3.5MB. Presently the "Manage Bookmark" window, when displaying a highlighted URL shows the labels, Name, URL, Tags, Keyword. I believe it should also show the taxonomy the URL within a users bookmark menu structure. Ie. ">Bookmarks Menu . House Stuff . sheds". Presently I export to Json, and put it in a viewer to find things. Not helpful at all and I find myself creating redundant folders in different places. A sort of reverse lookup is needed. And while you are at it, make the "Bookmark Current Tab" popup larger, presently it's so tiny, and the lookback depth is too small.
Bookmark manager - search for folder
It should be possible to search / find folders in the bookmark manager, not only actual bookmarks itself.
If I search for a term in the bookmark manager, folders are not listed at all!
Thanks in advance!

Search for folders when bookmarking a page
As someone who over-organizes their bookmarks, I'd love the ability to search for a particular folder in the Bookmark this Page dialog from the menu bar (especially if it had autocomplete) in Firefox. Scrolling through and expanding folders can be tedious and it seems like a fairly small quality of life improvement.
Edit bookmark , Search map or bo0kmark . Missing "a search option " . It take time, and hard to find.
When edit a bokmark / mapp . Or will find a bokmark / mapp . It is missing a option to search after it .
And also this open meny cant change size . Now its taking long time to find and hard also . So some option to choose what size you need.
Firefox - MANAGE BOOKMARKS
The FIREFOX MANAGE BOOKMARKS does not show the FOLDER the bookmark is in, similar to either the "BOOKMARK CURRENT TAB" --OR-- "EDIT BOOKMARK" THIS WOULD MAKE THE "SEARCH" FUNCTION MORE USEFUL. NOW WHEN YOU SEARCH, IT SHOWS MORE BOOKMARKS THAN MAY BE IN THE FOLDER YOU SELECTED, BUT IT DOES NOT SHOW WHICH FOLDER THE BOOKMARK IS CURRENTLY IN, OR HOW TO MOVE IT TO THE CORRECT FOLDER.
Searching bookmarks that are in folders
So my thought would be to be able to search for bookmarks that are in folders more of like of if there is more then one category like breakfast would be the main category then from there would be anything related to breakfast would be smoothies, breakfast casserole, brunch recipes and so on. So with that said in stead of trying to search for casserole all may or may not show up why not just search the spfic folder with the relevant category you are looking for. Thank you. Ps. In my work I have this struggle because I have to bookmark various stuff and have multiple categories. Thank you.
