My laptop knows my Firefox password, and opens it fine, but I can't remember it and can't figure out how to sync a new phone without losing my bookmarks, etc.
Somehow, my computer knows my Firefox password. But it has been so long since I've needed to know it, I've forgotten it. Firefox was synced to my phone. My phone died and I have a new one. (Actually, I just installed a new custom rom on my rooted phone). How do I sync it without knowing my password? Or how can I get my laptop to tell me the password for Firefox that it clearly knows? I'd rather not lose my bookmarks and numerous account passwords.

You can reset your password then use it to sign in on both devices.
Also, you can change other settings including 2FA, secondary email and recovery details, go to https://accounts.firefox.com/signin and click 'Forgot password?'
Resetting the password is exactly NOT what I want to do. I do not want to lose my bookmarks and logins, and that is what happens when you reset your password.
Let me explain again. I personally do not remember my Firefox password. My computer does, because it signs me in automatically when I open the Firefox app. My phone used to be synced to my computer, and also automatically signed me into my Firefox account when I opened the app. I have a new phone (basically). I would like Firefox on my new phone to sync with my computer, and have all my bookmarks and passwords. But I do not remember the Firefox password to use with the newly installed Firefox app on my new phone. My computer is still in possession of my Firefox password, because it still signs me in automatically. How can I get my phone synced with my computer, and my existing Firefox account without losing my bookmarks and saved website passwords?
