In above directories, there are many SQLite database files, so let's to import these databases and see what we get

require 'sqlite3'

# Browser history 
db = "places.sqlite"

# List all tables 
db.execute  "SELECT * FROM sqlite_master where type='table'"

# List all visited URLs (History)
db.execute  "SELECT url FROM moz_places"
# List all bookmarks
db.execute  "SELECT title FROM moz_bookmarks"

# List all Cookies
db = "cookies.sqlite"
db.execute  "SELECT baseDomain, name, host, path, value FROM moz_cookies"
