In Windows 8 you are able to create a Start Screen tile, or pinned site, that is associated with a particular web site.

This functionality, though, is dependent on the site and not all sites provide these extra menus.

With the release of Firefox 12 for Windows, Mozilla has introduced a new feature called silent updates. This feature will allow Firefox to install updates without first displaying a User Account Control (UAC) dialog. This feature is made possible through a Windows service named Mozilla Maintenance Service that is located at %ProgramFiles%\Mozilla Maintenance Service\maintenanceservice.exe. This service is not running all the time, but is started via command line arguments when a new Firefox update is available. Though, the Mozilla Maintenance Service is currently only installing updates, Mozilla has stated that it may include other command line arguments for this service that could clear the Windows prefetch, defrag a user's profile, and perform other actions that are not yet discussed.

Firefox supports small programs, or plug-ins, that add extra functionality to the browser. These programs are called Add-ons. These programs can add a myriad of features ranging from a new toolbar button, a menu option, or even add games to the browser. A large benefit of this Add-on model is that it allows the web browser itself to stay small and efficient, while allowing the end user to add new programs to it as they are needed. If a user wants a new feature that is supported in an Add-on, they simply download it and install it into their browser. If they no longer want this Add-on then they can easily remove it.
