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

(This is a bit messy.)

Prologue:
There are two nightly versions installed on this machine: One in en-US, one in de. Setting the en-US one as default browser actually makes de the default browser (bug 960998).

The tiles of pages I pinned from Metro mode of Nightly-de to Metro's home page have only two options: Remove from Home, and Change Size. After launching Nightly-en-US, clicking in the Options on the button to make it the default browser, and clicking on the button to open it in Metro mode, the tiles I previously created with Nightly-de have more options (Remove from Home, Pin to Taskbar, Open New Window, Run as Admin, Open save location, Change Size), while the tiles of Nightly-en-US lost all options except the two mentioned earlier.

These tabs with many options only get opened if Firefox is not running in Metro mode.
