We have some work to do to support right-to-left languages in Metro Firefox.  This will mostly involve adding RTL versions of certain image assets and CSS rules, and then auditing our UI for any RTL-specific bugs.
Depends on: 853121
If we know we're going to support RTL then we can move this to backlog I think.
Otherwise we can move this to v2.
I think it's important that we have basic RTL support for our primary UI (at least the app bars and tab strip.) I'll create a story that covers our MVP for RTL for v1 and attach it here.

Note: For testing in English builds, create a string preference with name "intl.uidirection.en" and value "rtl".

In addition, you can edit this file to change the direction for in-content UI (about: pages).
