Bookmarks search tells me if I have a particular bookmark but not where it is filed

Years ago when Netscape was the browser of choice for those who didn't use Internet Explorer, the Netscape bookmarks had a search feature where it would tell you not only if you had saved a particular bookmark but also the folder where you filed it. IIRC, about six years ago Netscape stopped informing the user where the bookmark you were searching for was filed. It seemed odd to me that Netscape dropped this feature, and Firefox doesn;t have it either. The Firefox search feature only tells you if you have the bookmark. Right now I can't tell where I filed a bookmark and it is frustrating me trying to locate where I filed it.

My question: is there a Firefox add-on that will tell me where the bookmark has been filed?

When I go to Help & Troubleshooting & click Open Containing Folder I get a Windows Explorer window that shows the file path including Used-Edward-AppData, etc. But when I click on the little triangle to the right of Edward the drop down menu does not include AppData and if I just go into Windows Explorer and Users-Edward, there is no AppData folder. So I cannot overwrite the profile file with the saved profile info from my earlier laptop. The folder symbol next to Edward has a lock on it but I don't know what that means or how to unlock it.

Using FF 3.6.8. Upgraded from FF2 a few months ago when I found "Old Manage Bookmarks" extension that allows me to see all bookmarks and folders at various tree levels in one window. But since upgrading, I cannot add a bookmark for a current webpage by any method other than create new bookmark, copy and paste URL. Certainly no one-click method. Have disabled my two bm extensions (one noted above and Add BM Here), and then all extensions, to see if problem vanishes. It stays. On Windows XP SP3.

I'm tired of shopping on a website and then going to a news site only to see ads from the shopping sites as if I'm being tracked and the ads are being customized for me. This happens all the time. I've recently seen Zappos.com and Bobbiebrown.com do this. Is there a way to prevent shopping sites from tracking me?
