Is that what the fans in a computer are for? To fan the flames? Why don't they blow the fire out? Ah well, that's another mystery to wrack my feeble senescent brain...

The fans allow a limited amount of oxygen through to keep the fire from spreading. Spreading fire burns up memory (also known as a memory leak, something FF is notorious for).

If you use any theme named Oxygen you could risk allowing the fire more fuel and damaging your PC.

Oh ****!!! I am using the Oxygen theme and the Air background/wallpaper! Better have a fire extinguisher handy. Thanks for the warning.
EDIT
Changed to the Black Glass theme, cuts down the glare from the flames.
