Bookmark folder in bookmark menu list will not delete. Using the delete methods provided in Support moz://a did not work. How can I make this happen?
Tried to add a folder to an existing bookmark folder on my bookmark menu list. I apparently didn't do that correctly so it created another folder on my bookmark menu list. I first tried to drag the newly created folder into the folder I want it to be in, but it would not move. So then I tried to delete the unwanted folder from the bookmark menu list, but it would not delete. I tried both methods provided online by Support, but neither one worked. I've moved and deleted bookmarks before, but it seems something has changed.

Let's start with;
[v57+] Places Maintenance is built into Firefox.
Type about:support<enter> in the address bar.
You will find Places Database near the bottom. Press the Verify Integrity button.
If you use Sync then best is to disconnect Sync temporarily during troubleshooting.
You can check for problems with the places.sqlite database (bookmarks and history) in the Firefox profile folder.
If "Verify Integrity" on the "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page cannot repair places.sqlite then remove all places.sqlite files in the Firefox profile folder. Firefox will rebuild places.sqlite and restore the bookmarks from a recent JSON backup in the bookmarkbackups folder.
- keep a backup copy of places.sqlite in case a new places.sqlite database has to be created
You can use the button on the "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page to go to the current Firefox profile folder or use the about:profiles page.
