    toolbars & add-ons are disabled


    I use two main and important add-ons : lastpass and FDM (free download manager).
    I like to use windows 8 new interface (Metro) to surf the net with add-on & toolbar features.
    I am not much familiar with this new interface.

    The another problem with this new interface is that I can not surf the net while I am using video app .
    I think this new Microsoft windows interface hasn't got multi-tasking feature.

    any suggestion would be helpful

    This Stardock program might help.
    It has a 30 day free trial so you can test it.
    $5 US to purchase it.

    ModernMix™ - Run Modern (Metro) apps in a window on your desktop with ModernMix™

    It seems you could have the video app open in one window while surfing in another window.
