    Firefox Nightly no longer opens in Metro...

    I was able to open Firefox Nightly in full screen Metro mode back when running the 90 day eval Enterprise version of Windows 8. But today I tried it again and it will only open in desktop mode. This is with ALL defaults assigned to it. I've been running the full Windows 8 upgrade the past two weeks.

    I wonder what broke it?

    Hey did you figure it out?
    My ff nightly also only opens in desktop mode.
    Got mine to work. I had the wrong version installed.
    You might want to try this one.
