How do we submit enhancement requests for SM?

I have a lot of bookmarks grouped in folders. Sometimes I don't remember where a particular bookmark is so I open "Bookmark Manager" and search for it. The problem is it doesn't tell me where in the tree (left-side pane) or what folder that bookmark is in. Sometimes I need to move it or delete a duplicate.

This is a feature that I remember being in Netscape and it was very nice.

"Bookmark Manager" should also remember the state of More/Fewer.

Thanks,
Justin

Thanks, but that add-on says "Not available for SeaMonkey 2.29.1". Since that add-on exists, does that mean there is a config switch that will do this?

I'd still like the SM development team to consider add this functionality.

Regardless of what it says, it will install. Click on the the grey "Add to SeaMonkey" button, then click on the "Install Anyway" button.
But then again, I may be wrong.

I went ahead and installed it. How can I tell what it is doing to allow the folders to be shown?

After you've installed it, open the Bookmarks Manager. then click on View | Show Columns | Parent Folder to enable it.
