Could someone make a "Recycle Bin" for Bookmark Folders - a place they go when they are accidentally deleted, so you can recover them?
I am referring to individual Bookmark folders.

That request was rejected in bug 487807.

You can create a bookmarks folder named Recycle bin, then when you want to delete a bookmark, click and drag to move it to that folder instead. Other than that, you can contact the authors of various bookmark manager add-ons and ask them to implement such a feature. Examples include Bookmarks Organizer, Bookmarks Manager and Viewer, and Bookmarks Manager.

You may know this, but if you have recently (same session) deleted some bookmarks you can restore them by pressing ctrl-Z repeatedly. If it does not work in the browser window, open the library - ctrl-shift-B and then press ctrl-Z one or multiple times.
