Looking at Urchin, one of the top search phrases is "firefox bookmarks location". Rather than assume people are looking for the actual file, I think this is about people bookmarking a page and not being able to find it in the bookmarks menu.
Can you verify this in Omniture as well?
No. #2 search term this month has been 'bookmarks', and #20 is 'bookmark'.
I added these comments to the "Bookmarks" article (staging copy in the bug URL): Library Window "You can use the Library window to browse your bookmark folders, or to search for pages you've bookmarked. If you want to find a page you've bookmarked, but you can't remember the location where you saved it, open the Library window and search using its Search Bookmarks bar." Smart Location Bar "...Type a few letters of the bookmarked page's name, web address, or tag name, and Firefox will display it in the Location bar. You can also use the Location bar to find pages when you know you've bookmarked them, but can't remember where you saved them." I think those should have been in the Bookmarks article already, but do we think that they resolve this bug?
(In reply to comment #3) > I think those should have been in the Bookmarks article already, Yes; thanks. But I still think this should be a separate article. :-)
I added an article for this to the proposed bookmarks documentation reorganization (http://support.mozilla.com/tiki-view_forum_thread.php?comments_parentId=396465&forumId=3). Draft is up, ready for review.

I think the purpose of the article has been misinterpreted (as sign that we should rename the article). This is based on the search term "bookmarks location". Using the search field in the sidebar or Library window does not tell the user where in their bookmarks (which folder) the bookmark is stored. Maybe a name like "How to find which folder a bookmark is in"? The solution: - fist name the default locations (what happens when you single-click on the star and when you use "Bookmark this page") - go to the bookmark, double-click on the star, and look at the "Folder:" field.

Should we spin the current draft off into another article, like "How to search for bookmarks"? I think it's nice to have bookmark search documented. I'll write up your instructions for finding the folder shortly.
If we have an article for "How to search for bookmarks" (which I'm not against), I think the content would tell users to use the Smart Location Bar. If people want to use other methods, I'd like to know the use-cases.
This is done except for the title. "How to find the folder for a bookmark"? "Finding a bookmark's folder" (apostrophe in URL, though)?
Ready for review?
Yes, if you have a title for it. Not marking FIXED pending that, but if you have something in mind, go for it.
