Oh, and what a nice, relaxing vacation it was!  Pity it had to end :)

We currently have no xforms pseudo element support in Firefox, as 
mentioned on the page Leigh pointed you to.  To have such such support, 
we will need to make changes to the core Mozilla code in an area in 
which none of us have any expertise.  So for now, it isn't a terribly 
high priority since we have a workaround.  Hopefully in the future we'll 
have the time and resources to address this hole.  If you'd like to 
track the issue, please cc yourself on this bug:
