Firefox / Xmarks have lost all my saved passwords..

I've just installed FF on my new laptop(W7 Pro 64) and Xmarks - a combination I have on two PCs and another laptop - I was prompted to upgrade FF to 3.6.15 and the other three updated automatically.

Now I find I have lost all my saved passwords in FF - and they aren't on the Xmarks server either it would appear.

I've been increasingly irritated by FF as it's become known as Firefox (Not Responding) but this is the final straw - I cannot get Xmarks to work properly with Chrome, so

a) Can I retrieve my lost passwords from a System Backup (Acronis) I have and how?

and

b) does anyone know a reliable cloud backup plug-in for Bookmarks and Passwords that works with Chrome?

Do you know how to Mount your backup w/ Acronis so you can copy your files? You don't have to do a full system restore, Acronis allows Mounting the backup so you can pull files out of it.
