I had same problem for about 3 weeks before I clean installed FFox 19.0 (after 18.02) had a lot of issues when I imported HTML backup.

Only today I discovered using the "Bookmarks Sidebar" to delete items and including item separators.

FFox MenuBar > View > Sidebar > Bookmarks Right click on unwanted items > Delete

I hope this works for you
