[pro only] Firefox comes to metro

I had tried out the nightly build which didn't have good support for third party plugins in metro mode. Any idea if LastPass works in metro mode with this release? No LastPass is a dealbreaker.

I updated Firefox yesterday but never saw that relaunch in metro mode.

It updated itself a couple of times after I installed the beta and then it worked in Metro once I made it the default.

Touch is just a microsecond slow on my Surface Pro 128 ( original ).
Quite usable but also noticable when you do a two finger expand or contraction.
Not a deal breaker by any means because it is only a very small fraction of a second delay.
If you weren't paying attention a person might not even notice.

After installing make sure to set it as your default browser, then select the FireFox logo in the top left and choose "relaunch in metro mode"

I like it, though unfortunately scrolling for me is quite laggy at the moment. Definitely a good first release!

I wonder why my scrolling is so slow!
