That's a quality of implementation issue, no?  See 
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=216537 for the Firefox bug 
on this.

In any case, this sort of browser UI issue seems out of scope for the 
CSS specification.

That's really the same issue as above (at least from my point of view)...

I agree that standardizing site selectors would make it easier for third 
parties (like yourself in this case) to create user stylesheets.
