Couldn't find it, so I ran updateb with the old drive mounted.

key4.db shows up in several places, but it looks like the one I might 
want is one of these two:

this one as its the biggest by quite a bit
/home/gene/.mozilla/firefox/73t2g4uq.default/key4.db except its on this 
drive? But copying it over from the old drive didn't seem to do a thing, 
and neither did copying logins.json. Firefox  has changed a lot since 
wheezy.

So I guess I'll have to shutdown, swap cables to make sdb into sda , boot 
wheezy and see if I can con it into printing all that stuff,  I need my 
bookmarks-toolbar to make it complete too.  Sigh. Tomorrows project, its 
about time to go scare a couple pork chops to death with a hot skillet.

Thanks.
