One reason not to do this is that it allows the 1% of users who know
how to fix things for real to work around problems, while leaving 99%
of users stuck with the problems. This is why you want to look for
real solutions instead of stuffing the UI full of workarounds.

In this specific case, Metacity does have a nicer solution. And if you
get in an infinite loop there's always killall in a terminal, or
xkill. If those are a bit inconvenient, I hope it will encourage the
1% to fix Mozilla, or at least file a Mozilla bug report! ;-)
