Well what version of fire fox? is it a stable release? are there any other people having the same issue as you in the same configuration? are you
using a 64bit variant of Firefox?
Firefox runs fine for me...
Desktop mode is a trick of the mind that microsoft threw at the world to try and fool us.
Windows 8 runs the desktop regardless. It just loads metro over it. If you have a dual monitor setup, you'll notice that the second monitor has...
The entire inner workings of the system still operates reliant on the things that only run in a desktop environment.
I thought, at first, it was more metro with a little desktop to sooth the savage retro users who still think windows 2000 was a mistake.
But the more I've had to deal with it, the more I realise, metro is the side line.. big fancy side line.
So anything as typical as firefox won't really be too bothered by windows 8. I think the issue is elsewhere, but where..
you don't give enough details.
