Don't want it, don't need it, useless modification of my Firefox experience.

Looks like a mimic of Google Chrome.

You might be able to delete the Other Bookmarks folder, but that might break Firefox functionality. That is the default "save to" folder for the "Bookmark this page" feature, so whatever bookmarks that would be saved via that feature wouldn't appear in Firefox and couldn't be used, unless you saved it to a different folder to begin with.
A mind is a terrible thing to waste. Mine has wandered off and I'm out looking for it.

"other" was "Unsorted" before quantum. did you had "unsorted"? if yes then why asking now?
its a security feature vs. adware to set unwanted hidden bookmarks anywhere.
"Default bookmark folder" and "Bookmark Tab here" are also a manual choice
