    Find Bookmark and Folder (FF3)

    Sometimes I can't remember the exact name and folder location of a bookmark. In FF2 I used 2 add-ons: "Enhanced Bookmark Search" and "Locate in Bookmark Folders" but they don't work in FF3 and there are no updates. Can somebody recommend an add-on that does the same in FF3?
    Thanks in advance,

    Regards, Teunis

    I don't know anything about those addon pieces, but have you tried opening the bookmark sidebar (Ctrl- and searching that way? You might have to try a time or two but for me it seems to do a good job if I come anywhere close to the name.

    Big Al,

    That works in as far as I get the bookmark, but not the folder where it is located. And that is just the piece of info I am interested in too in case I want to relocate the bookmark to another folder (which is probably the reason I could not find the bookmark in the first place).

    Regards, Teunis

    Aaarrggh, you're right, Teunis! Even in the new Fx 3 bookmark library, there's not a way to locate the folder. Sorry, but hang in here to see if someone else has an addon answer for you.

    PS The least acceptable method would be to open a browser tab with the bookmarks.html file in your Fx profile! Doing a Ctrl-F search there on "piz" (for example) allowed me to find that the three bookmarks I have for pizza restaurants are in my personal toolbar/shopping folder. I know, it's a bit much and don't know if a shortcut to that file would make it any more "palatable." <img src=/S/blush.gif border=0 alt=blush width=15 height=15>

    Thanks, that works but I still hope somebody comes up with something more elegant.
