When Firefox is first run, it should have asked if you wanted to check other browsers and import bookmarks.

Find all of these "old" bookmark folders and remove/rename them.

These can help with the current bookmarks folder, Use with Extreme Caution;

Bookmark Duplicate Cleaner {web link} Scans for bookmark duplicates and allows you to delete them

Bookmarks Checker - check for bad links {web link} Check favorites for broken or bad links. It checks for bad links and displays a report if it finds something. Check for 404 links, timeout links.
