Single Stack search:

We can already search our bookmarks within a single Stack Exchange site by using inbookmarks:mine <insert-search-terms-here>, which uses elasticsearch behind the scenes.

Feature Request

The single-site inbookmarks:mine search is really useful. I hope for an enhancement to our current capabilities. I have bookmarks spread across at least 20 different Stack Exchange sites. Some of those sites have technology overlaps... as an example, I could find answers to bash shell or TCP questions on at least five different Stack Exchange sites. Often I know I bookmarked a question somewhere, but I can't remember which site I bookmarked it.

Please enable search across all my Stack Exchange favorites by using inbookmarks:mine <insert-search-terms-here> from the Stack Exchange search box. In other words, this query should return a search of all my bookmarks across all Stack Exchange sites:

I realize this may require a change from Google search to elasticsearch; I hope this request is possible.

This is more or less possible with a Stack Exchange Data Explorer query; I've written one here where it's looking for the word 'this' in your bookmarked questions:
