Hi 2TorchL, do you mean on your Mac or on an iOS device (iPhone, iPad)?

For Mac (desktop Firefox), Firefox doesn't normally show bookmarks in date bands, but it does show history -- the list of URLs you visited -- in groups like that.

Let's say you are viewing your history older than 6 months and you want to delete all those visits. Single-click any item in the list on the right side of the Library window. Then, to select all items on that list, you can press Command+A. If you have a lot of items, this will take some time. I have over 100,000 in that date range and it takes 5 seconds. So then you can delete the entire group.

Success?
