 I started to rework the transients at one point with the above in mind,
buit it caused very odd breakages.  I never did get the chance to track
down exactly what was going on, and at this point I can't do so :(

My best luck with Firefox was to doFloat windows whose appName was
"Toplevel" (a bit of laziness on the Firefox devs' part...)
