What's the use of description of a bookmark? Find Bookmark in Bookmark-Tree? FavIcons on second synced devide?

more options

1. I'm a little bit confused about the useage of descriptions of a bookmark. For what can I use it after I filled something in? Is the intention to open the booksmark property to see what I have filled in a long time ago? Maybe I could be useful to add this to the Bookmarks tooltip?!

2. I have many Bookmarks in many Subfolders. But sometimes I don't find a Bookmark. So I try to find it over the awesome-Bar and I find it. Is it possible to see in the awesome-bar/SearchFunktionInBookmarkLibrary where I have the Bookmark in my Bookmarktree?

3. I have synced my Bookmarks to a second PC. Is it possible to load all favicons an this device?

  2. The following add-ons make locating bookmarks easier in the Library and the sidebar.
  3. You can try the Favicon Reloader add-on to reload missing site icons.

You can install the following add-on to add various things to bookmark tooltips, including the description. Although it was last updated a long time ago, I've tested it and it works even in Aurora (currently Firefox 31.0a2).
