Cornel, are you sure that Firefox's start menu tile is able to be resized to wide and large? It doesn't look like Windows supports that for non-Microsoft apps:

I can confirm that this is the expected behavior, thanks Katie!

This looks like it is not actually only for non-Microsoft apps, but only for Windows Store apps.
Per https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/dn393983.aspx,

Tile design best practices specify that if your tile is not a live tile, it should not claim the extra screen space required for wide (310x150) and large (310x310) tiles. Because a desktop app's tile is always static and never live, those additional tile sizes are not supported in this schema.
