That web installer is a bit ugly, I hope they can make better.

The next nightly for OS X should support the Apple Colour Emoji font, it seems Apple only coded support for rendering it into the "CoreText" APIs, and since Firefox was using the "CoreGraphics" APIs the pictures just never showed up.

But, now Firefox checks for the presence of the CoreText APIs and uses them if it finds it, so that font will start working now (Although a better solution is to use their SVG in OpenType proposal)

What happened to the 'Tabs On Top' option in Nightly?

I just did a fresh re-install and noticed it's gone ... but I'd prefer to see my Tabs under the Bookmarks Toolbar instead of the default 'On Top'

It's removed from the context menu now , however it exists in about:config.
browser.tabs.onTop

I might be missing something obvious here, but I can't get the Firefox modern/metro UI to work in Windows 8 Pro. I have tried both tinderbox and regular nightly builds from the Elm branch, and after I make Nightly my default browser, I see the Nightly live tile appear. When I select the tile, I see the blue Firefox splash screen and then it just closes and returns to the Start screen.

Sounds like you're doing everything right, but it's bugging out and crashing

Does Firefox for METRO allow plugins or did it secure itself?

Nothings really happening at the time I guess. We're still waiting for downloadmanager, incontent-ui and Australis theme.
Any news about when it might showing up in UX?
