There is already an extension that does this:

the folks in bug 55181 are pretty adamant that it's fixed for the Suite,
reopening this as the Firefox UI bug since I couldn't find another. An extension
to do it is nice, but it's a legitimate request for inbuilt functionality.

A further refinement is bug 260839, the ability to log out of a single site.
Possibly that's all anyone would need, but one of the two would be good.

Description and comment 3 are clear that this is a UI bug.
There is no “logout” button in firefox that expires a particular http-auth session.

You need to reopen.
