Yes. Please do not send close events to my Firefox windows.

Do keep in mind that Firefox is pretty much broken and might not even be
able to show a "Do you want to restart?" dialog by the time the RPM
transaction is rolling, so if it's going to involve user interaction,
that will have to happen in the PackageKit GUI.

Another option is to make Firefox notice internally how broken it is and
try to restart itself. It would need to somehow wait until the
transaction is done, though.
