Firefox Marketplace for the desktop versions of Firefox
When Firefox Marketplace is available for the desktop versions of Firefox, an app that you install will be launched as you would a typical desktop application. For example, under Windows 7 and older, a launch icon for an installed Firefox app will appear on the Windows desktop and under the Start menu. Mozilla is developing a future version of Firefox that would work with the Windows 8 app launcher UI, so Firefox Marketplace apps might be incorporated into the Windows 8 app ecosystem.
