I have a Windows 8.x laptop with a touchscreen display and wanted to know if there is a version of Firefox available with customized layout to utilize this feature. Currently everything in the current version of Firefox (Beta 39.0) is designed to use a mouse. Alternatively is there a layout utility tool available that one could design their own. Using the customize controls works well in a mouse driven environment but there buttons are too small when trying to use in a touchscreen environment. (unless you get your 6 yr and use his fingers. Lol) Just need to mimic the iPad layout and all will be good. Thank you for taking the time to respond.

Hi impendo, I will disappoint you, the metro version of firefox has been cancelled and it won't be available in any current product due to a lack of interest, please see: https://blog.mozilla.org/futurereleases/2014/03/14/metro/

than you

So much for the future of Firefox and touchscreen displays. I didn't realize it was even called Metro. Maybe next time a try bit of advertising and it might help get the interest level up there to carry on with development. Being a long time Firefox user I find it very disheartening to find that I have to reluctantly switch to some other browser that will support a touchscreen display. Let the search begin. Who knows I may find something else and switch over all my devices completely.
