Mozilla was going to release a special Metro version of Firefox browser for Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 with 28.0 version release but now the company has stopped working on the Metro version of Firefox. The decision was taken due to very less number of users of Firefox Metro beta version in comparison of Firefox Desktop beta version.
