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.
Also, related idea here: Bookmark search should show folders as well
YES I raised this some time ago!
I am going to have a grumble..
The objective in good design should be click-minimisation., and reduction of cognitive load.
Right clicking should show things that are NT obvious, e.g. right-clicking on an item int the Mac folder now shows some 10 or so options that are not obvious.
However, in the case we are discussing, there is already a presentation metaphor we are all used to, that is, the Bookmark list on the LHS of the window.
So, showing the folder containing the bookmark could look like that
Result of bookmarksearch as it should be
Right-clicking could show the folder-tree AND the lists of options that might be available..
People need the folder..in my case, I am re-naming bookmarks so that I get all related ones, e.g. uk.news all my news links will eventually named according to *.news..
But the folder is in ~Bookmarks.Menu->all.good.bookmarks->news.sources->european.sources->uk.sources
With hundreds of folders. So, I think that the path should be the automatic display with the imediate folder and its contents.
The display should be ~Bookmarks.Menu->all.good.bookmarks->news.sources->european.sources->uk.sources
The path is more useful to me than the actual location in the bookmarks list displaced although this is a useful option. Right clicking could then give more options
I hope this helps
A "Folder" column would be a HUGE help in allowing users move/sort their bookmarks so that related bookmarks are all in the same place (making them easier to find.)
The new "Show in Folder" option on the Right-click menu is helpful, but one big problem with that is that it takes you away from your search results.
I'd like to sort my bookmarks via "Cut & Paste" directly from my search results, not be taken away from my Search results to the folder where it resides, then have to hunt for the desired folder over & over for every bookmark I wish to move.
hi, what i want is finding folders of bookmarks in search bookmarks

Hello Mozilla Community.
I know it has been requested in the past, but a bump never hurts and depending on the mood of desirable features to support here it is again.
It would be nice, when searching bookmarks, to be able to search the folder. It was a huge boon in being able to right click and 'show in folder', but when your bookmark library goes across a few decades it gets large. Add in having to regularly perform research and actively use bookmarks in a work environment, sometimes searching by bookmarks and tags isn't enough and the ability to search folders for categories would be great.
Thank you for your time!
