Hi, when you bookmark a page from the star in the address bar there is a option to add tags. tags would be a word to identify the bookmark. You can add more words when separated by a comma to help in identify and give more meaning to this bookmark.

For previous bookmarks you can Right Click them and add a tag or tags also from properties.

The use of tags would help organize as well as help in searching your large data base it seems. Organize and spend time with your bookmarks when have a chance you will then fully understand the power of organize, tags, folders, placement from the Bookmarks in the Firefox Menu. Yes is work.
