In the most recent version (example: Firefox 63.0.3 on Cosmic) the
behaviour is different. Firefox actually blocks the restart/shutdown
process by showing a popup "X tabs will be closed". But the whole OS
also creates a modal dialog box, asking whether to cancel, reboot or
turn off, and the modal dialog boxes actually prevents the user from
closing Firefox properly using the Firefox pop-up window. If "reboot" or
"turn off" are chosen, Firefox will show the dreaded "Well, This Is
Embarrassing" screen.

This is an improvement from the previous versions. However, a proper
shutdown sequence should allow the user to close applications properly
right after initiating the reboot/shutdown procedure.
