I took my car in to a Ford dealership this past Wednesday and told them about it and they fixed it. The previous owner of the car would have received (so I'm told) notification for 2 recalls, one being the sync and the second being reprogramming the PCM, TCM and ABS module. This second recall is what fixed the shaking car during idle and it in fact did fix mine, recall 12B37B for your reference. It may fix your issue, it may not but it's worth a shot.

Ill have to give the dealer a call tomorrow and ask if mine had the recall fixed. I bought it new on July 23rd so im not sure when that recall was released but its definitely worth a try. Do you know if I have to take it to the dealer I bought it from? or can I take it to the nearest Ford dealer.
