Doesn't sound as though the bookmarks were backed up. I don't think that you can back up the passwords. A fresh install of Firefox and Windows would have wiped them. Sorry but I think that you are out of luck.

If you made a complete backup of your system drive, this will show you how to restore your profile, which contains all passwords, bookmarks etc.
