I think it's fairly normal to let your mail reader store your email
password.  So replace Firefox with Thunderbird or Mail.app, and the
passwords will (again) be unencrypted, I think?  Or does (say) OS X (or
Ubuntu) start a key chain when you log in, and then Thunderbird consults
that when it connects to the IMAP server?
