I'm no expert but it would seem like an awful lot of trouble to retrieve info stored on a hard drive that has been formatted. I imagine they would at least know first that the hard drive they wanted to take info off actually had something worth it to worry about.
These days formatting a large hard drive doesn't even take that long so I don't know why you would want to only break a 10gb partition to store your data, seems like too much trouble.
If you are that worried about it don't save passwords in firefox. write them down and keep them somewhere safe at home.
