Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Excute firefox in menu or panel
Actual Results: No circling mouse cursor icon(sand clock icon).
Expected Results: Circling mouse cursor icon(sand clock icon).
I want to add this, but it behaves to not behave properly for some
reason. It does not cancel startup notification when the window pops up.
That is not the correct line.
For applications that aren't build to use to use startup notification,
you must add a "StartupWMClass=" line.
Adding "StartupWMClass=Firefox-bin" to Firefox's .desktop file makes
it work perfectly with startup notification for me.

patch to add startup notification to Firefox
Correct, StartupWMClass should be used if startup notification is not
implemented by the app.
To use StartupWMClass you must be able to guarantee that launching
this .desktop file will open a window with that class *always*
Do we want to use StartupWMClass or use the patch in comment #3.
Um, the patch adds StartupWMClass
Fixed in 1.0-4
