Firefox Nightly 29.0a1 2014-01-17 on Windows 8.1 Pro 64 bit

Steps to reproduce:
1. After pinning a page to the Metro home screen.
2. Launch a different firefox process with the -no-remote parameter.
3. Likely optional: Kill the metro Firefox process.
4. Go to home screen and click on the pinned page.

Actual result:
Desktop Firefox gets focus, tab open in Metro Firefox.

Expected result:
Metro Firefox gets focus independent from other Firefox instances running.

> Dupe of bug 382477?
You duped bug 961063 against bug 382477, so if using that as a catch-all for -no-remote bugs, you can also dupe this.
