I came looking for info / status on addons like Show Parent Folder or Go Parent Folder, when I saw the recent post on this forum, with slow workaround: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1161879
Q: Do any other addons exist, updated for Fx 57, that instantly show the parent folder of bookmarks in a bookmarks manager search results?
The workaround in forum question 1161879 is OK for 1 bookmark, once in a while. I need this on a regular basis. Anyone that's collected bookmarks for a couple of decades, has similar-topic bookmarks scattered in different folders (not duplicates).
Imagine a file manager with search function that finds file names, but doesn't show where they're located. :D Fairly regularly, similar-topic bookmarks need to be located and moved to one folder.
For everyone "bugged" by lack of this feature, the request / bug on bugzilla won't help immediately (it was filed 15 yrs ago!). It's gotten some recent attention. This and similar bugs probably need more votes (need a bugzilla acct) vs. more comments, at this point. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=196509 https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=469421
Now that addons providing this feature have gone away, maybe if lots of users voted for it to be fixed, developers would make a change.
On a much larger scale than one bookmarks feature, if Firefox was losing users to Chrome before, what does Mozilla think will happen when many addons & plugins suddenly go away?
