Why doesn't the bookmarks library have the ability to sort the columns by "folder" (The subdirectory folder they are stored within)? Would Firefox please add?

Basically inside the bookmarks library, when searching for a particular bookmark, there is no way to display which folder that bookmark is saved to.

It has been very frustrating to not be able to do this because I'm a guy that has probably 2000+ bookmarks for reference and if I want to be able to move the bookmarks or confirm they are in the folder I wish, I would like a way to be able to search for them and have it not just show their location as a web address but ALSO as where they are saved. Perhaps name that new column "Folder" like Microsoft does in windows when you display a folder in the "Detail" view you know?

Thanks!

You can look at these extensions to add a parent folder column to the Bookmarks Manager.

The only way to locate a bookmark without an extension is to open the bookmark in a Firefox tab (possibly in offline mode) and click the yellow star on the location bar to open the "Edit This Bookmark" dialog.

That was perfect - I didn't even think to look in the add-ons section. Thanks you both so much! I couldn't pick both your answers at the same time so I just went with the one that came in first.

Peace
