Locate bookmarks folder after finding bookmarks in Firefox

In the Firefox Library (Ctrl-Shift-B), I search my bookmarks. I find some and want to organize them - put them to some specific folder. But I don't see which folder they are in! I might have already sorted them placed different folder.

How can I find out in which folder the bookmarks I just filtered are?

(This is a real pain. I remember I was using Mozilla 10 years ago, before Firefox was born, and Mozilla was great - it could do this of course. Firefox has cut many useful features, trying to be more "modern" or "easier" for users, I don't clearly understand why... )

Show Parent Folder is a Firefox extension which will let you see the parent folder when you search for a bookmark. It only works when you're searching via the Library (i.e., "Show All Bookmarks") by adding "Parent Folder" to the "Views->Show Columns" list; it doesn't affect the sidebar search at all.

Great! Exactly what I need! It can also show the full path to it! (can be set in Tools / Add-ons / Show Parent Folder / Options) How great!!! Missing this for years! Thanks again! – Tomas Apr 2 '12 at 14:35
Drat. Doesn't seem to work in Firefox 33. Go Parent Folder does, though. – ʇsәɹoɈ Nov 3 '14 at 22:51
