It looks like this information is out of date. I found the file. But the last time bookmarks.html was updated was 4 years ago. So this appears to be an abandoned file by newer versions of Firefox. I am using 43.0.4 in January 2016.

Firefox is not in the Application Support folder. What now?

If it's installed on your System, it would be in the Library folder of your home directory, i.e. /Users//Library/Firefox. You many need to make your Library folder visible in order to see it though. http://osxdaily.com/2011/07/04/show-library-directory-in-mac-os-x-lion/
