the same goes with this command
tune2fs -l $(awk '/^\/dev.*\/usr/ {print $1}' /proc/mounts)|grep ^Err

ths command mount|grep /usr
shows this
cgroup on /sys/fs/cgroup/systemd type cgroup (rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec,relatime,xattr,release_agent=/usr/lib/systemd/systemd-cgroups-agent,name=systemd)
So we establish /usr is not on a separate partition.

There is absolutely no reason to discuss what it does as I only needed to know the mount point to be able to show you a command line with which to backup the files you requested. Since you didn't post the requested output you best use your file manager to drag and drop the directories you need to backup to your pen drive. The Firefox profiles reside in the ~/.mozilla directory and you can replace the whole directory once the OS is re-installed. G/L.
