Sometimes I search by words in the Library (bookmark manager) to find something related to something I'm reading, mostly because I wish to add the page I'm reading to the same folder as an older bookmark. When I click on a search result, on the bottom panel, I can see many infos, but not the folder(s)/path(s) where I decided to put it. How can I know that please in an easy way please ? I've looked for addons, but didn't find one...

That is one failing of the Firefox library.

The quickest solution is to open the bookmark to find out.

IIRC There are addons that will help. I will look and see what I can find

Perfect ! I don't know why I didn't find them on the addon web site with keywords "bookmark and folder". A way to show it and filter search result a la Finder of OSX is still my dream ;-)

for such feature requests it's best to use https://input.mozilla.org/feedback - maybe it will get picked up ;-)

Go Parent Folder: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/go-parent-folder/ was a helpful addon, but it does not give the path to a Bookmark. One still has to search through the folder structure to locate a Bookmark's home.
