You can use the keyword pin in your location bar followed be the search term to trigger a search of you tags (e.g. type pin bash in browser location field to search for all your bookmarks with the tag bash).

context menu

configuration options

To configure the add-on, open the firefox add-on configuration and click the simplepinboardbutton settings button. You can choose the bookmarklet you want to use. You also have the option to use a full text pinboard search and tag search. The full text search will also search title and description. The drawback is that if you created a new bookmark, tags will only be found after indexed them for the new bookmark. This will roughly take a day after bookmarking. The second option is to use tag search. With tag search active, only tags are searched, but will be found immediately after bookmarking.
