More Information

Other domains/bookmarks that are currently active I can edit or remove the ones I no longer want. My problem is trying to remove a URL that is dead/not active. It just jumps to some other default page and I can not edit it & remove it.

You can open such a bookmark in a tab and click the blue star to open the Edit This Bookmark dialog if you can't find the bookmarks in the Bookmarks Manager (Library)
