I'm not sure what instructions you've followed, and I'm not a Mac person, but normally you right click(Mac equivalent) on a Bookmarks Toolbar space and click on new folder.

Is that what you've been doing?

Which instructions did not work for you?
There are several ways of creating a folder and moving your bookmarks to it. One of them is:

  1. Go to Bookmarks > Show All Bookmarks menu.
  2. In the left pane, under All Bookmarks, select Bookmarks Toolbar.
  3. Right click on Bookmarks Toolbar and select New Folder.... (Note that if you have a 1-button mouse, you can right click by pressing the Ctrl button while clicking the mouse)
  4. Specify a name for the new folder and click OK.
  5. Drag your toolbar bookmarks to the newly created folder.


Another, quite similar, way is explained in this article: Use bookmark folders to organize your bookmarks.
