Nor seeing the shutdown messages has been standard since FC5 or FC6.

As other have said the different behavior of Firefox is a function of
Firefox 2 which did not appear in earlier versions of Fedora.
Not closing Firefox before you shutdown will cause the messages you
indicate when you open Firefox 2.
