this is a javascript feature that you shoudl turn off:

disable the ability in firefox for webpages (through javascript) to 
"Raise or lower windows".

xfwm4 is just listening to the application's wishes and doing the right 
thing. Creating some form of ACL for window events doesn't make sense in 
the current development stage. Use devilspie for fine-grained solutions.
