Firefox can't change passwords, it don't have that kind of power. Which password are you meaning, Firefox's master Password, or Your computer's password?
Firefox's Master Password -- used to secure passwords you've saved in Firefox -- shouldn't be connected to your Mac's password(s). Unless Firefox works very differently on Mac than on Windows.

Is this the password for the Mac keychain or the Firefox Master Password?
