Hello,

I have lots folders and sub-folder in my bookmarks. Often I don't remember where a particular folder is location. The search option in the bookmark 'Library' appears to search only for the bookmarks and not the bookmarks folder.

Is there any way to search it? Are there any plugin that does this?

Thanks in advance!

Hi,
This is probably the best extension, seeing as the original 2 (Show Parent & Go Parent) are no longer being updated.

You use > View > Sidebar & the extension will show either the folder or bookmark you require.

In a treechildren type of list like the bookmarks sidebar and the left panel in the Library you can set focus to this area (i.e. click in it) and quickly type the first two characters of the folder same to jump to the next occurrence (bookmark or folder). If you can type very fast then you may be able to type more characters, but one or two should work.
This only work when the folder is visible, so you wont be able to find collapsed content.
For folders best is probably to use the left panel in the Library.

Maybe "Everything" from Voidtools will be helpful?
