Web applications with Firefox instead of Epiphany

Epiphany/Web internet browser has a feature called "Save as web application", which makes web pages to become standalone applications (running on Epiphany) that can be launched from the Gnome 3 menu.

However, for many sites, Epiphany doesn't make the cut (examples, Gmail and Wolfram Alpha) as it is unresponsive and it often doesn't render these pages well.

The question is can Firefox save "Web applications" in Gnome 3 in the same way under Fedora, and later launch these Web applications using Firefox as backend instead of Epiphany?

I have read a solution a few month ago for Chrome, see this article from GNOME Desktop Webapp Chrome Extension

You could try the Firefox add-on Mozilla Archive Format, which allows you to save the page as Web Archive (MAFF or MHTML).

Thanks, but that only helps me save webpage but to to make it a "web app", that is, make firefox open without menus and toolbars at that page.
