Regarding 1st link
Default created Password files consist of TWO files:
1. key3.db
2. signon2.txt

the only similar file I have is signons.sqlite
but I mentioned that these are not there
I dont want to use any addon or other thing to install it . Actually its on other OS so i will have to boot there and do this and then come back to this os and import it :(

Since it isn't Windows I guess there is no guarantee that the file names or locations are the same? Ask in a Mozilla forum I guess?

Actually it is on windows xp
hey I found something

Firefox stores your password data in two files: key3.db (Master Password / Encryption key) and a "signons" file (encrypted names and passwords). You can back up your passwords by making a copy of both "Key3.db" and the "signons" file for your Firefox version. Firefox 2 uses signons2.txt, Firefox 3.0.x uses signons3.txt, and Firefox 3.5 and 3.6, including current Beta and nightly builds, use signons.sqlite. [4] See Profile folder - Firefox and Profile backup for additional information.

source:http://kb.mozillazine.org/Password_Manager

mine is latest and it has signons.sqlite instead of those text file. I opened it with notepad and I can see the sites for which passwords are saved but username and password are encrypted
But the problem is solved for now . All I have to do is replace it
