Firefox

Firefox is now at version 12.0. Basic AppleScript support (such as getting the URL of the current window) hasn’t worked since version 3.5, and it was intermittently broken in some earlier versions. — Michael Tsai Realistically, Shelf is going to stop being useful at some point in the next couple of years.
