MISSING in Firefox 19: save bookmark search as a virtual "smart" folder
After upgrading to Firefox 19, the "Save" button to save a bookmark search as a virtual smart folder is simply missing.
I cannot find a way to save a search as a smart folder.

I found a mozillazine thread confirming it was removed in fx19 . It actually surprised me I had not noticed this as I thought I used it fairly frequently.
- Smart folders,what happened?
Reading that thread and other information I get the impression this is part of some greater development plan that I presume will involve the Android and Firefox OS versions. It even seems likely that at some future date this or a similar feature will be re introduced.
Meanwhile the above linked thread mentions this addon to get the option back
- and even the option to manually create such bookmarks https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Places_query_URIs
