User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.2; rv:20.0) Gecko/20130117 Firefox/20.0
Build ID: 20130117094953

Steps to reproduce:

Installed clean elm build (20.0a1) and set as default browser.
The Desktop Mode works like a charm. I can add the -metrodesktop prefix and the MetroFox starts in the desktop mode.if i click on the newly created blue Firefox Tile, it opens firefox in desktop mode. Changed Registry key to 1, metrofox will start but crash.
