What's wrong with the built-in password encryption in Firefox? Look
under Preferences->Security->Use a Master Password. You can even use a
secure access card if you know how to set it up.

There are also external (to Firefox) password-storing apps, or even
strategies like storing password files on pendrives. I store important
ones on a PDA (encrypted of course :-) This trades security for
convenience, since you have to type them in.

You need to state more clearly what you're trying to protect against.
