I can isolate a bookmark with the filter, but how can I "find" a bookmark in the hierarchy of the ShowAllBookmarks window?

I want to find a bookmark in its location in the hierarchy of bookmarks, but all I can do with the filter is isolate a bookmark[s]; either using the filter of the bookmarks sidebar, or in the ShowAllBookmarks window. For instance, I know I have a certain bookmark, but I want to move it into a new "folder" and rename it, perhaps; for this I need to be able to *see* it in the hierarchy, as in the Finder of a Mac, when the filter turns up a file, then "Show Original" of "Open Enclosing Folder."

I'm just trying to understand how to use these add-ons, having just added them on, to borrow a phrase, but have now found a comment re Go Parent Folder, "This extension does not seem to work in MacOS X. " <http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?t=659690>. Sadly [altho I really like Snow Leopard] I'm running OS X.6.7. Nonetheless a contextual menu mousing down on a "found" bookmark indeed does give the working option of "Go to Parent Folder" from the found list of the ShowAllBookmarks window, *or* the that of the sidebar window. Bravo!!

Just a question again, how would I have learned this had I not bothered the entire forum, and taken cor-el's time/effort?
