[Why is this notable]: It homogenizes the functionality of the "Hamburger/Bookmarks"-panel and the bookmarks-menu-button-popup. Both support searching bookmarks from the urlbar, now.
[Affects Firefox for Android]: no
[Suggested wording]: Bookmarks can now be searched from the bookmarks menu. The bookmarks menu is accessible by adding the "Bookmarks menu" button to the toolbar.

Note added to Nightly 114 release notes in the NEW section with this wording:

Bookmarks can now be searched from the Bookmarks menu. The Bookmarks menu is accessible by adding the Bookmarks menu button to the toolbar.

Leaving the relnote-firefox flag as ? until this is added to the final 114 relnotes
