Indeed -- and this is wrong. Older versions of Firefox used to have a
--gtk-class flag which would allow you to change the Class of the
window before it is mapped  for just this purpose, but it seems to
have been removed.
 The Class of a window is only allowed to be changed in the
WithDrawn state, hence why you can't change it with xprop whilst it is
mapped. This is in accordance with the ICCCM2.
