There's actually been a patch for this for a long time, since before Firefox 2.0 was released.

It's actually not much of a step in the right direction at all. So long as the application's overall UI is based in XUL, which it very likely will continue to be for the foreseeable future, Firefox will continue to be laden with quirky and inconsistent user interface behaviors.

To be honest, I'd rather they addressed things like using the Keychain to store passwords and using the system spell check / dictionary than looking at putting in native aqua controls. I know I can install dictionaries if I need them, but why not use the one that's already provided with the system?
