Create a Firefox (and Thunderbird) extension that monitors for alarms 
even when the user isn't logged in to Horde.

The user still need to be logged in for that. We would have to store 
the user's credentials somewhere for that. That poses two questions:

- can we access the password manager from a firefox extension?

- is the user logged in to a web application, if an extension is 
logged in to it? I.e. is there a shared cookie between extensions and 
the main browser?

Yes.

It depends on how we do the auth. I imagine if we do the auth with 
cookies, the answer is yes. If we send auth credentials with each 
alarms ping (say using json-rpc), then the answer is no.
