Right click the Firefox executable and select "Pin to start". 2. Hit the windows key and right click the Firefox icon. 3. Select resize and pick one of the values.

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: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/dn393983.aspx#Specify_images

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.
