How do I delete archived bookmarks? (Those used to "restore" under "import"?)
For privacy reasons, I want to delete ALL of my bookmarks. I have deleted them, but I have noticed that under Import and Backup, then Restore, there are folders of archived bookmarks under dates that go back for months containing past sets of bookmarks.
How do I delete those
Firefox stores the bookmarks and history in the places.sqlite database. There are also backups in the bookmarkbackups folder.Read this answer in context 👍 1

I figured this out. You have to get into the Profiles folder and delete them there.

I'm using FF 47.0, and I found my profile folder. But there are three types of sqlite files: sqlite-wal, sqlite-shm, and sqlite. Should all three be deleted?
Yes. You need to remove the main places.sqlite file and the places.sqlite-shm and places.sqlite-wal temporary SQLite files to remove all bookmarks and history.
Thanks, cor-el, appreciate it.
