I am using FF 3.6.3, I an attempting to use FF Search to locate a specific Folder, which I placed inside another Folder. In this case, I have a Folder entitled 'Health' (no quotes), I research, and have various health-issues placed inside this folder. I am attempting to place new bookmarks within the aforementioned folder, however I only receive the various prior bookmarks, and it seems that 'FF Search' is incapable at this time to inform me as to which folder my previous bookmarks with this particular (specific) Health Issue are located within. I would also like to take it out of that folder, and perhaps place it in General Bookmarks so that I will not lose track of it again. Any assistance would be appreciated.

You can install this add-on t0 add a column to the Library window ( Bookmarks > Organize Bookmarks ) to indicate which Folders your search items are located:

Once installed, in the Library window, click Views > Show Columns then click Parent Folder to show that column in the search results area.
