there is no way to 'surf' to the correct /mark/notebooks, as there is no
cd.. place to click to go back to /mark and then to /mark/notebooks. When I
do the 'To import a notebook, drag the file onto the listing below or
*click here*' option, it only let's me 'upload' the selected notebook, which
means copying to the directory where I started ipython notebook.

to have the option to 'click here' as it is now but then not being forced to
'upload' the notebook.
One solution if you have folders in different locations would be to simlink
them (mklink /J in windows) into the notebook server directory
