Database connectivity through ODBC and JDBC to allow cookies, passwords, bookmarks etc to be stored in databases like Postgres, Mysql, Firebird etc.

is it a dupe of bug 20683? reporter, if you agree, please mark so, else please describe that it is more complex
bug 20683 seems to be about storing cookies through LDAP.
no it's something more complex. it involves mozilla being able to connect to Relational DBMS so that address books, history lists, bookmarks, cookies, passwords and whatever other structured data could be stored in a database. I could vaguely recall a bug somewhere calling for bookmarks to be stored in a database which required a database to be built from ground up. I believe that would require a pretty big effort whereas building database connectivity would allow you to choose what database you want to use while bug fixing of the actual database would not be required.
