I couldn't find the related bug for Firefox.
Just add the following 2 lines to Info.plist:

<key>LSApplicationCategoryType</key>
<string>public.app-category.productivity</string>

Looks fine to me.

I'm not sure I understand the point:  An app's "category" seems to be a Mac App Store thing (http://hints.macworld.com/article.php?story=20111017134102735).

But it seems harmless.

Bug 714716 has more information and a screenshot.
Oh, OK.  See particularly bug 714716 comment #0.

Interestingly, it seems that /Applications and /Applications/Utilities are the only directories that can be sorted by "Application Category" (at least on OS X 10.7.5, where I tested).  But that's a sensible way to sort those directories.
