Is there a way to clean my profile directory?

I back up my profile directory, but it seems to be overly large. It contains over 100K files and over a GB of space. I couldn't find any command or extension to clean or compact it. Am I missing anything?

Which files take up that much space?

Firefox 4 versions and later keep 10 JSON bookmark backups in the bookmarkbackups folder (earlier versions keep 5).
You do not need to backup them all.

Well, I'm not going to pick through files; there are over 100K of them! I'm just wondering if there's anything (other than clearing cache) to clean up all the junk.
