Security of saved passwords when my computer has possibly been compromised

Hello,

I recently unintentionally interacted with a scammer via a livechat from my firefox browser. Could they have hacked my computer via a live chat? They were not pushy like scammers usually are and I am concerned what they were wanting to get out of it.

Then if they could have - could they have accessed all the passwords I have saved in Firefox? I did not know about the primary password system so didn't have that enabled at the time (I wish that it was the default that was switched on).

Thanks for your help.
