My Mac HD software got damaged and I have to do a complete system reinstall. I have a complete backup using Time Machine and want to restore all my Firefox bookmarks and prefs, especially all the stored usernames and passwords. Where do I find the right files? I assume when I have the files, I just copy them into the new software, right?

Thanks for any help anyone can give me.
