I am not sure what you are trying to accomplish, but in Firefox
preferences, go to the security tab and there is a check box
"use master password". If you turn this on, when you start a fresh
session in FF, the first time you go to a website that FF has a
saved PW for, it will ask for the master password to decrypt the
saved PW file. Once you enter the master PW once, all user
names and passwords will be filled in automatically, until you
close FF.

Apologies if you are after something completely different .
