Mike can answer this better, but I believe the main problem with this
is that Firefox doesn't have a per-tab reference model.  Meaning, a
non-tor tab could reload some content in a tor-tab, de-anonymizing you
in the process.  Or some javascript/metarefresh can load between tabs
and get your non-tor state and then your tor-state; which correlates
your identity in both cases.
