This is a serious point, but shouldn't it be listed under "enhancement"? The guys at Mozilla are great people but I don't know by what criteria one would block content... Worth looking into though, as possible gains making the small chance of success worth it.

Maybe this could be done system wide via a display driver wrapper like ZoomText. Or on Linux via something a compositor Compiz. By getting it at the low level you have better guarantees to stop it. Another thing to remember is: Complex rules inspire complex attempts to get around those rules.
Not a Firefox-specific bug, moving to Core.

Based on comments and discussion with Davidb, closing as WONTFIX since this should really be done system-wide rather than inside Gecko apps. Moreover, we don't have any control over plugins and other parts, like Aaron suggested in comment #3.
