> explain how a user would switch from Linux to Windows and bring their
passwords with them

Same way you would for secrets used by any other application: enter them
again. This is an OS/desktop issue, not the responsibility of an
individual application. Of course if you have decided to use cloud
password storage like Sync then that would be your means of sharing
secrets across machines.

By the way Windows seems to have no general service comparable to GNOME
Keyring or KDE Wallet or OS X Keychain. It does have CryptProtectData,
meaning that on Windows it is appropriate for Firefox to store its own
passwords so long as it uses this API to prevent them from being kept on
disk in cleartext.
