Did you check the return value for FindWindow() to make sure that it succeeded?

FindWindow uses GetWindowText to get the window name for comparison. It is unlikely that your firefox window only has the word "firefox" in it's title...

It's better to give the class name rather than windows caption. Just use spy++ or a similar tool to get it.
