Retina Firefox?

I’m not sure what to make of this blog post (via Neven Mrgan). Firefox 18.0.2 doesn’t look Retina on my Mac: not the text in the browser window, not the images, not the tab titles or bookmarks bar, and still not the preferences window or favicons.

I have Firefox 21.0a1 installed and it still doesn't look completely like a Retina app. I guess that's the result of being a non-native Mac app and different priorities …

@Martin The strange thing is that in Firefox 18.0 the page text, tab titles, and bookmark bar were all Retina. In 18.0.2, only the menubar and window title are Retina. Version 21.0a1 (2013-02-12) seems to restore the behavior of 18.0.

Firefox 18.0 is definitely speedy and better performance-wise but retina display is still not there. I am also using Firefox Add-on builder at this point to develop add-ons on my own using the following blog:

Any help in this regard will be appreciated.
