Firefox Versions on Windows 8 to Share Profiles After All

Friday, November 8th, 2013

Mozilla has been a bit slow in adapting Firefox to the Windows 8 start screen … but I’m not sure if that says something about Mozilla, or if it says something about the popularity of the Windows 8 start screen.

One of the new features of the Windows 8 operating system is its dual-interface. You got the start screen area where you can run apps in fullscreen, and then the regular desktop where you can run legacy software just like before. One of the limitations here is that you cannot run a desktop browser on the start screen interface. While that is not a problem for users who ignore the interface altogether, it is for users who do use it.
