I am not  sure where to post this, I have Windows 7 & Firefox. Firefox was exploited with the "Chrome" issue not to be confused with Google Chrome,  All I want to do is; copy my Firefox passwords & bookmarks to a thumb drive.Then completely remove Firefox/Mozilla profile. Just need help with passwords & bookmarks to a flash drive.

I haven't used this tool and I can't confirm it will work in the latest Firefox. I have actually taken screenshots of my Firefox

passwords as a backup. Be sure to read all the info in the link before using if you decide to do so.

PasswordFox - Reveal the user names/passwords stored in Firefox

 

You can backup your bookmarks by clicking on History > Show All Bookmarks > Import and Backup > Export Bookmarks to HTML.

Save on your desktop, email or flash drive...or all 3.

 

EDIT: If you have Google Chrome browser installed you can import both Bookmarks and Passwords from Firefox. You can

reverse that...import Google Chrome Bookmarks and Passwords into Firefox.
