I have multiple repeated bookmark folders. I want to be able to delete them all without having to open each one in library and delete the contents.

I do not use a Mac. The keyboard shortcuts may differ but the actions are I expect the same. Select a folder in the left hand pane of the library, right click and use the delete option.

If they are indvidual bookmarks rather than total content note that control clicking &/or shift clicking may be used to select multiple bookmarks that may then all be deleted together.

I have not tried deleting multiple folders, it may be possible, but it may be best especially if there is a lot of content to in each folder to delete a folder at a time.

It is good practice to backup bookmarks manually and I suggest before and after doing any deletions would be a good time to ensure you have backups made.
