Using the latest stable LibreOffice Writer 126.96.36.199 on latest, upgraded Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit
I was playing with Digital Signatures.
I don't know which password to provide in the box: Enter password to open file: NSS Certificate DB
I tried to provide my own password (primary user with sudo access) but it's not working! I tried not to provide a password - the same.
Here are the steps how to reproduce the error my issue:

LibreOffice uses Mozilla's certificate management system/database, so it asks for your Mozilla/Firefox/Thunderbird certificate-store password.
In my version of Firefox, you'll find the certificate manager in Edit|Preferences → Advanced → Encryption → View Certificates.
Other Version might have it on the Security or Privacy tab.
To sign documents, you need a x509 certificate, if you don't obtain one via a certificate authority (verisign, startcom, CAcert, … there really are a lot), you can create a self-signed certificate using openssl (there are numerous tutorials out there) Many tutorials however focus on creating the certificates for use with a webserver, and thus are a little more complicated than necessary. Don't be put-off by walls-of-text :-) It basically is just three steps:
