I'm looking to figure out how to permanently remove these unused "features" from the Bookmarks menu, not just from the window. Thanks.

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

This cannot be done.
You can move the bookmarks from inside, but you cannot delete the folders because they are programmed into Firefox.
Sorry.

You can't remove any of the three main root folders.
You can possibly hide them with code in userChrome.css.

Add code to the userChrome.css file below the default @namespace line.

The customization files userChrome.css (user interface) and userContent.css (websites) are located in the chrome folder in the Firefox profile folder.

@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* only needed once */
