As far as I know, not as the master password protecting Firefox's own
password store. But what you can do is make Firefox use *another*
password store, one that relies on GnuPG.
pass  is a password manager which encrypts passwords with the user's
GnuPG key. Several plug-ins are available to instruct Firefox to use
pass instead of its own password storage system, such as PassFF  or
BrowserPass . (Disclaimer: I tried none of them.)
So, when Firefox will need a password it will ask pass, which will call
gpg, which will in turn "call" your smartcard.
An obvious drawback of this method is that you need to migrate all your
passwords from Firefox's own storage to pass. There is at least one
script available for that , but again I did not try it.
Hope that helps,
