The failover firewall normally takes the IP address of the primary firewall incase of any problem. Virtual MACs are also swapped between the units. Unlike HSRP, wherein if the primary comes back, it becomes the master, firewalls do not have this character. To bring back the primary to active mode, you can reboot the failover firewall (which is now in active state)..
