Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox-3.0

GNOME has a session manager that can record what softwares were running
when the session was closed, to restore them next time a session is

While Epiphany (based on Gecko) is compatible with it, Firefox (Firefox
2 in Gutsy or Firefox 3 in hardy alpha 5 for instance) is not.

I know that Firefox makes use of Xul whereas Epiphany uses GTK+

Does it mean that GNOME session manager can't work with Firefox or is it
a bug ?
