For many years now I have felt frustrated that the Bookmarks Library search feature doesn't have a field that allows you to tell where bookmarks are located within the bookmark file structure. You know, that bar in the right pane, above the list of bookmarks for a selected folder...where you can select to show "Name," "Tags," "Location," etc.? Well, there ought to be one for bookmark's physical location in the file structure. So, you know, when i search for a bookmark i know i have, i can note where it's located and then move it to a more appropriate location, or whatever.
