Undeleteable bookmark folder

Is there any way to move or delete a top-level folder in the All Bookmarks folder in Firefox 3?

In FF2 my bookmark toolbar folder is named "null" and has no bookmarks. When I installed FF3 this folder was carried over into the All Bookmarks section and it seems to be undeletable and unmovable.

Here's what it looks like from the main Bookmarks menu, here's what it looks like in Organize Bookmarks.

I have the same thing, except when I downloaded from a mirror, I accidentally downloaded the Farsi version. I later switched to the US English version, but the Farsi remains, a unintelligible testament to my inability to follow directions.

Looking forward to the solution!

Have you tried editing the bookmarks.html directly?

C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\RANDOM.default\bookmarks.html

First, save a backup.
Then you can find that entry and delete it.
