Probably a bad torque converter lock up solenoid...
Try starting it in neutral, and putting it in drive without your foot on the brake (I know the car will take off in quite a hurry if it doesn't stall but it's an easy way to check for this)
If it doesn't stall, apply the brakes, and if it stalls then, it definitely is a bad lockup.
I don't know if you're familiar with the torque converter function/operation, but where it is a fluid (liquid) and not solid coupling with the engine, lockup is used at certain road speeds/engine RPMs to get rid of the power loss that always occurs between the pump and the turbine of the torque converter. It mechanically (through transmission oil pressure) locks both parts of the converter together so it then acts like the engine crankshaft is bolted right to the input shaft of the automatic transmission.
But, as you might imagine, this system has to unlock the converter when you apply the brakes for the same reason applying brakes without the clutch on a manual transmission stalls the engine.
Bad lockup solenoid will cause this to happen... The converter stays in lockup and as soon as you try to stop the vehicle, you also stop (stall) the engine.
It also might be something else but I'd say I'm about 90% sure on this one.

SOURCE: 93 honda accord fuel pump??
Check the distributor by letting the car run and tug on the wiring and see if the car acts up. Under the thermostat housing is a wiring harness, I've seen coolant drip on the connector of the O2 sensor and cause this problem too. The main relay is the switch you're referring to. It's located under the dash of the driver's side to the left. I've definitely seen these go bad. Use a test light on the hot wire to the fuel pump. Have an assistant turn the key in the "on" position and see if you have power there. Let me know what you found out so I can hopefully give you more things to check out. Send me emails to firstname.lastname@example.org.

on a 83 its a external fuel pump, mounted in front of the fuel filter right in front of the drivers side rear tire, sounds like a bad pump or a bad relay or also could be the oil pressure switch that tells the fuel pump to kick in

A common problem with this year Honda is the main relay becomes hot and the internal connections open up, causing a no start condition. I am assuming everything else is in good working condition. The main relay is located on the driverside kick panel up about 12 inches from the floor, mounted with a single bolt and looks like this;
