Ahh, Okay. The package is build with Gtk3 toolkit [1] (the recent 
official ones are Gtk2) so it's a regular Gtk3 app which should better 
fit to Gnome 3 desktop, use themes/skins and so.

The long term plan is to switch Fedora Firefox to Gtk3 so this is just a 
tech preview. Full of bugs, of course :)
