How can I move/delete bookmarks from Other Bookmarks by tag (without duplicating/deleting those that have been successfully sorted)?

more options

I've started the slow process of sorting my bookmarks -or at least the ones that I remembered to tag when I created them- out of "other bookmarks". Unfortunately, while I can go into the Library window, select a tag, select all the items with that tag, and hit CTRL + X, doing this still only seems to copy the bookmark (despite graying it out like it knew what CTRL + X was supposed to do). Now I have duplicates, and deleting them presents equally probably-a-bug problems. Even if I figure out which duplicate is the "old" bookmark under the tag (such as by renaming them and checking which one was added to the target folder), deleting it deletes both. The best workaround I've been able to figure out is to temporarily change the target URL of the one I'm about to delete, since, as I correctly deduced (thanks @mybrain), it's deleting based on the target. Is there any better workaround, or should I report this as a bug (as I was going to do anyway) and hope for a fix? Also, where would the best place to make that report be?

Can someone at least tell me where I can report this as a bug? I'm guessing based on the lack of response that there's not a better workaround right now (and that it's almost certainly a bug if no one can help), but I'd at least like to bring it to the attention of the developers. Is there an issue tracker somewhere? Never reported a Firefox bug before

It's been a while but I'm still having this problem. I also still want to report the part of it that, in all likelihood, constitutes a bug.
