I have some live bookmarks in my Personal Toolbar Folder (actually in a subfolder of the Personal Toolbar).
When I open the bookmarks sidebar (Ctrl+B) or am in Manage Bookmarks, and I try to search for a keyword, then all the live bookmarks show up in the search.
I can see how this is a feature. But it can be annoying too: suppose I have the above URL included as a bookmark, and then search for the keyword "linux". I have dozens of bookmarks which match that keyword, so my static bookmarks are buried inside all of the live ones.
It would be nice to have an checkbox or toggle button when viewing bookmarks to ignore live bookmarks.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add a live bookmark such as the included URL to the Personal Toolbar
2. Manage Bookmarks or Ctrl+B
3. In the search box, enter a common keyword for the live bookmarks
4. Notice that static bookmarks are buried in live bookmarks
Confirmed. Sounds like a good feature to have. :-)

really, should be the default since live bookmarks childre are not users' created bookmarks
