Mozilla Firefox password manager change path of key3.dp file on hard disk ( move key3.dp outside profile folder )

In the moment I use a strong master Password to protect the saved passwords in the file logins.json. According to [this thread][1] even if you do not use a master password the file logins.json is encrypted by using an encryption key that is stored in the key3.db file.

Is it possible to let Firefox know that the key3.db file is located on another hard disk folder like X:\CrpytedVault\FF-Passwords instead the default profile folder.

Say my Notebook gets stolen and we assume that the CrpytedVault that contains the `key3.db` file cannot be cracked.

Then the logins.json is worthless for the attacker ? What is the security method that firefox uses to encrypt the logins.json using the `key3.db` file. Google was not my friend for this Question
