Never mind, I had to manually copy all the data into one of the folders and delete all the other archived ones.

I have two folders on my MacPro laptop. One named FOLDERS (which contains everything) and another one named Firefox Data (which contains everything that is on my original FOLDER). When I try to delete the items in the Firefox folder it also deletes the main items in the FOLDER. How do I get rid of the duplicate folder and not lose the originals?

How did you end up with the 2 folders to begin with?! Sounds like the Firefox folder is at a higher hierarchy in the folder structure than the Folder folder.
