It is not possible to set a password for starting Firefox on desktop computers. You would have to use separate Windows (guest) accounts and set a password on your own account and only allow to start Firefox in your own account.

Keep in mind that you couldn't do this reliably with a Legacy extension because you would only have to start Firefox in Safe Mode (i.e. hold down the Shift key when starting) to bypass the extension. Users can also use a portable Firefox version on a USB stick, so only software on the OS level or security software (firewall) can block internet access reliably.
