There's a way to make an app launch on startup on OS X. In fact, I even did it and now have FF launching when I boot my machine. But now I can't remember how you do it.

Would someone remind me?

Go into System Preferences > Accounts > Login Items, and add or drag the application you want to launch on startup to the list:

Login Items

How about starting a console application on login? – sorin Feb 5 '10 at 11:41

Alternatively, right click on the application whilst its running in the dock and click "open at login"

If the app in question does not appear in the Dock, you'll need to use the other method, though. – Matthew Schinckel Aug 22 '09 at 11:23
