    Safari 6.1 doesn't let me "Show in Collections" any Bookmarks?

    Am I missing something or has Apple removed this ability?

    It's still there, but combined into the one location now. Just type the search into the address bar and you'll see bookmarks included in the search results.

    Not for "Show in Collections"

    Thank you for your response. I haven’t explained things very clearly so forgive me.

    This is an ordinary Bookmark Search.

    I am talking about right-click on the search and getting "Show in Collections".

    For instance, in the screenshot I am looking for "MisterArt.com" (Red Oval) but I've forgotten that particular website.

    I know it's a Folder with "Judy Greene Music" (Green Oval) but I have forgotten the Folder it's in (in this case, it's in "Score Paper" Folder in "Purple Oval").

    I used to have Bookmarks open, press Cmmd + "F", search for "Judy Greene Music" and be able to right-click on the search and use "Show in Collections" and it would find the exact Bookmark "Judy Greene Music" in the Folder (of which I have hundreds) called "Score Paper" so I could find "MisterArt.com".

    Does anyone know if that capacity still exists?

    If you go to the Bookmark menu, and select Edit Bookmarks, you get a similar view to the old bookmark window. Command-F does allow you to search. You won't see the usual search bar, but typing filters the results as you'd expect. This seems buggy and may get removed (or fixed) in a future update, but for right now it more or less works.

    Excellent dylanryan!

    Edit Bookmarks and in the lower right-hand corner is a Window for "Search Bookmarks".

    Search for your subject and right-click on the search found and you get "Show in Collections"!!!

    (See screenshot.)

    It's still there but Apple has cleverly hid it . . . that was sarcasm :)

    I didn't even *think* to look in the bottom for the search thing. That makes it feel much less buggy and, hopefully, therefore less likely to disappear.
