Bookmarks "search by title" feature is quite useful, but it could be a killer of
hierarchial tree of bookmarks if one could perform searches by meta information
provided inside html pages via META tags.

Extending bookmarks.html with such information seems easy to me. The next step
should be improvement of bookmarks search sidebar with meta names + checkboxes.
This way one will be able to e.g. search all bookmarked pages where meta name
"author" is equal to say Linus. I miss this feature very much!

It is annoying to manually fill keywords when they are already available on the
bookmarked page in more structured way, so I don't bother filling them. Page
titles are often not descriptive enough. So, bookmark search as it is
implemented now is even useless for some pages.

This would fit nicely into places.
bookmarks.html is no longer the storage area for Firefox bookmarks.  This bug is now INVALID.

The actual storage is not that important. The missing functionality is. I'm updating the title to be more generic, and reopening the bug.
