The background colour of the Firefox tile on the Windows 8.1 start screen is a drab grey and I want to change it. I created a file called firefox.VisualElementsManifest.xml in the same folder as firefox.exe - C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\ and this is what it contains:


<Application xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
<VisualElements
BackgroundColor="#D79DD0"
ShowNameOnSquare150x150Logo="on"
ForegroundText="light"/>
</Application>


That is the only change I made to the PC to alter tiles. Rebooted. Doesn't work. What can I be doing to further this great mission?
