Just upgraded to firefox 6, in previous versions bookmarks were searchable both by "name" and by "url." Now they appear to only be searchable by name.

If you type a url into the search box, even if it contains most of the "name" within it, search does not locate the bookmark. In the past, I could copy a url and put it in the search box (both on the bookmarks sidebar and the "show all bookmarks" popout library) and it would search and locate the bookmark. This would tell me last time visited, date added etc. Since upgrading to firefox 6, entering a URL does not return any results. So for instance, a flickr photostream is at url - "www.flickr.com/1234abcd" if I copy that into the search box I go no results (however, I used to in previous versions) However, if i type only "1234abcd" in the search bar, it does find the bookmark. This is long winded enough so I won't go into detail as to why this is an issue, but it is a huge inconvenience. Thanks for any help.
