Can I use the new Firefox Beta for Win 8 on a non-touch screen computer?

I installed Win 8 on my somewhat old laptop (3 and 1/2 years old). I don't have a touchscreen on it, I don't want to use Internet Explorer, and I badly want to use the new tile Firefox and help it's development. I installed it and tried to enable tile mode but it is not offered in the settings at all. Is it possible to use it without a touchscreen?

Hi Marko,

Unfortunately work on the tile interface was discontinued due to low interest. You can find more information here:

The code lives on, so the project could well be restarted in the future. But for the time being you can only use Firefox in its traditional "desktop" interface.

Sorry for the bad news!
