Search bookmark - found - but where it is ? In which bookmark folder ?

more options

Bookmark manager is quite good - the manual organization is simple, but I'm confused in same case over and over...

I'm pretty sure, I have some bookmarks already saved to somewhere. But I have a lot of bookmarks. And yes, I can search for some bookmark - the manager find them - I can click and all is running, but - where is the bookmark hidden ? In which folder ? Next time I want to go to bookmarks menu and select that bookmark directly... Not calling BM again and again...

This simple information is missing in searched bookmark, when clicked on them once.

It shows: - name - address - tags - keywords

BUT NOT WHERE IT IS... (?) The folder where it stays...

Do You think it is not important ? For Me sure...

Or I have overlooked something ? Maybe ?

Thank You.

Hi robert. uhrik. robcon, this is a longstanding gap in the functionality of the Library window ("Show All Bookmarks"). Currently there are two workarounds:

(1) Use the Edit Bookmark dialog

When you have loaded the bookmark and the star in the address bar is blue, click the star, then expand the folder list (there's a button with a v-like icon for that). The current folder will be highlighted in the list.

(2) Use an add-on

For example, https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/bookmark-search-plus-2/

Of course, it's also possible to export your bookmarks to manipulate in another tool, but that file would become obsolete pretty quickly.

Hi jscher2000 and cor-el.

Thank You - the "Bookmark search plus 2" addon was the solution for Me - because it has the funcionality I was searching for - expand the bookmarks folders to the position, where is the found and clicked bookmark located in the folders structure.

Thank You again.

p.s. The addon "At Your Command" - will look further how it can help Me solve intemittent problems with all the informations stored in FF database of My profile :-) It looks interesting... :-)
