Bookmarks' optional "Location" column shows the sites' URLs, but I need to see their locations IN MY FIREFOX *BOOKMARKS* FOLDERS!!

已張貼

A "bookmark's location" ought to show its location on my browser, rather than the PAGE'S ONLINE ADDRESS. If someone has a webpage bookmarked, then why would he/she need its URL? But that person might be going howdy-rowdy trying to find a bookmark in his/her own browser's folders (don't ask me how I know).

It's called the "location" because it's pointing to where the bookmark goes to, not where it's located in your bookmark manager.

It's listed so that you could change the location if you want to and have the bookmark point to another place. It's also handy if you have multiple bookmarks with the same title, so that you can see what website it points to.

Also, having the ability to see what folder a bookmark is located in likely wouldn't be a huge help, since you need to actually find the bookmark in order to be able to see any information about it.

@Wesley Branton is right. And "Location" is not limited to websites. For example, you can Bookmark an image of the Eiffel Tower on your computer with: file:///C:/Users/YOURNAME/Pictures/Eiffel_Tower.jpg

If a bookmark-search won't show me where the bookmark is LOCated, literally and LOCally, then the search result is not a "LOCation." Cities named on a highway sign are not that sign's "LOCation."

Finding bookmarks that I seek, i.e., their *LOCal* *LOCations,* would, in fact, be a "huge help" to me. These LOCations are necessary for me to reorganize my bookmarks folders.

Regarding your partial comprehension ("to see what folder a bookmark is located in... you need to actually find the bookmark..."), I see that I was mistaken in thinking that I had stated the problem clearly enough for all.

It's a longstanding problem that there isn't a "containing folder" column in the Library window, or a right-click > Go to Folder command. It's on the wish list.

People have created bookmark search add-ons to work around it. I don't use any of them myself.

P.S. No point debating the proper meaning of the word location, it's built in to web standards under that name.

I also wish there was a "containing folder" column or a right-click > Go to Folder command. The attached image shows a situation where a containing folder would be helpful in deleting one of two existing bookmarks.

"Parent Folder" is term to search for when looking for a Firefox Add-on that has the "location" in your bookmarks. There have been a number of Firefox extensions over the years that would show the user the "parent folder" of a specific bookmark.

Check out this extension: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/bookmark-search-plus-2/ "Displays and filters bookmarks on search string, show parent folders."

The only builtin way to get the parent folder in to open the bookmark in a tab (possibly in Offline mode) and click the highlighted star in the location bar. Expand the full folder tree via the second down pointing arrow and check what folder in selected using the scroll bar.
