Prompt with obscure string

The text we use to ask a user for his master password is very obscure:
»Please enter the master password for the Software Security Device«

Let's make that a little clearer:
»Please enter your Firefox master password to access saved logins.«

Bonus points if we manage to get a Firefox logo instead of the blue question mark in there.

I will take a source link and an art asset here, if you'd be so kind.
Unfortunately this prompt is also used for other things, such as client certificates.
Hi, I would like to take this issue, could be possible? If yes, the unique thing to do is change the text? the image in the prompt needs to be changes (what image will be used there)?

I think there are logo assets in the product already that could be used.
Dolske, is there a way to use different messaging when the dialog is used elsewhere?

Also for resolving it as a duplicate of a bug filed in 2005 already?
