[Firefox 68.3.0esr 64-bit]

When searching bookmarks, search results do not include folder names.

Is there any way to include bookmark folder names in the bookmark search?

No there isn't.

This extension will find the folder names:

You may try my add-on for this task -> https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/at-your-command/.
See picture below (https://i.imgur.com/8AvAS1B.png) for what to do.
1) find bookmark - prefix b means "search in bookmarks"
2) hover over folder cell to see full path (optionally)
