You don't need the password of the 'firebird' user (and I don't think there
is any way to get it, for security reasons). It is logged in
automatically, for the sole purpose of starting (and therefore owning) the
server process and the system files.

The password you do want is the Firebird user password for the sysdba
user. You'll find that in /opt/firebird in a text file named SYSDBA.password.
