Bookmarks search tells me if I have a particular bookmark but not where it is filed

Posted

Years ago when Netscape was the browser of choice for those who didn't use Internet Explorer, the Netscape bookmarks had a search feature where it would tell you not only if you had saved a particular bookmark but also the folder where you filed it. IIRC, about six years ago Netscape stopped informing the user where the bookmark you were searching for was filed. It seemed odd to me that Netscape dropped this feature, and Firefox doesn;t have it either. The Firefox search feature only tells you if you have the bookmark. Right now I can't tell where I filed a bookmark and it is frustrating me trying to locate where I filed it.

My question: is there a Firefox add-on that will tell me where the bookmark has been filed?
