Basically inside the bookmarks library, when searching for a particular bookmark, there is no way to display which folder that bookmark is saved to.
It has been very frustrating to not be able to do this because I'm a guy that has probably 2000+ bookmarks for reference and if I want to be able to move the bookmarks or confirm they are in the folder I wish, I would like a way to be able to search for them and have it not just show their location as a web address but ALSO as where they are saved. Perhaps name that new column "Folder" like Microsoft does in windows when you display a folder in the "Detail" view you know?

You can look at these extensions to add a parent folder column to the Bookmarks Manager.
- Show Parent Folder: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/show-parent-folder/
- Go Parent Folder: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/go-parent-folder/
The only way to locate a bookmark without an extension is to open the bookmark in a Firefox tab (possibly in offline mode) and click the yellow star on the location bar to open the "Edit This Bookmark" dialog.
- Show parent folder - https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/show-parent-folder/
- Go to parent folder - https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/go-parent-folder/
That was perfect - I didn't even think to look in the add-ons section. Thanks you both so much! I couldn't pick both your answers at the same time so I just went with the one that came in first.
