Having trouble editing bookmarks because FF won't tell me where they are when I click on the yellow star.

The yellow star works fine for storing new bookmarks, but if the bookmark already exists, I get only the small "edit bookmark" box, and not the full box that shows where it is and lets me edit it. My bookmarks are all organized into folders, and sometimes I can't remember where that bookmark is stored. Any ideas why I should have such a problem?

A little more investigation showed that an add-on named Omnibar Plus was causing the problem of not being able to edit the bookmark, but thanks for the info about add-ons that find the parent........Russ

Sorry, Firefox doesn't have a "locator" for bookmarks that will tell you exactly which sub-folder a bookmark is located in. IMO, a major lack of usability, but the problem has existed forever and I got used to it.

But there are two add-ons available for a feature like that.
https://addons.mozilla.org/EN-US/firefox/addon/go-parent-folder/
https://addons.mozilla.org/EN-US/firefox/addon/show-parent-folder/

Without installing an add-on this is what I do.
{ Ctrl + B } to open the Bookmarks sidebar. Use the Search at the top to find that bookmark, then right-click and select Properties.
