You make it sound like Firefox behaves on the target OS as the target OS
might expect an app to behave... but I know Firefox does not do that on
Windows. The Firefox window is anything but "standard", including most of
the window chrome and controls.  I (along with many AHK users) wish it were.

Maybe this initiative will change that?
