I can no longer save my saved passwords as an xml file.

You posted with a Waterfox user agent. This is a third party build, so you would have to contact Waterfox for support.

I assume that this is about the Password Exporter extension.

The extension seem to work fine here in the current Firefox 34.0 release when I tested it in a new profile.

These can't get your data back, but will help in the future.

These add-ons can be a great help by backing up and restoring Firefox

FEBE (Firefox Environment Backup Extension) {web link} FEBE allows you to quickly and easily backup your Firefox extensions, history, passwords, and more. In fact, it goes beyond just backing up -- It will actually rebuild your saved files individually into installable .xpi files. It will also make backup of files that you choose.

One last thing. In the event that the passwords information is lost, you should record all information in a separate text file somewhere else on your hard drive, or written down. You can easily copy and paste if you need to do so. If you are concerned about someone else looking at that file, you can compress it using a password.
