I am not sure about the passwords, but you can export your bookmarks. Go to Bookmarks, click on Organize Bookmarks, and in the new menu, click file, and then export. It will then give you the option to export your bookmark in whichever directory you want as an html file.

The files you are looking for are in /home/"user"/.mozilla/firefox/"random_code".default
I guess the 3 *.db files have the passwords. You can test this by moving or hiding one at
a time.
