The Password Manager data is stored in a file called xxxxxxxx.s in your profile folder, where x is a number (on Windows anyway). To back this file up, copy it somewhere. If you want to restore it (due to the accidental deletion of the original or creation of a new profile) then run Moz and get it to save a password. You need to do this so that you have a new Password Manager file. Go into your profile folder and find out the name of the new .s file (it'll probably be different to the old one). Rename your backup file so that it has the same name as the new file and move it into your profile folder, overwriting the newer version. Moz should be able to access your passwords fine now.
