Features such as Mozilla's well-established Awesome bar are also present in the Windows 8 optimised version of the software.
In this case, searching in the Awesome bar returns results from your web history, as well as presenting the option to search the web using a variety of different providers, such as Google, Yahoo, Twitter, Wikipedia and Bing.
The browser has also been integrated with Windows 8's native search 'charm', meaning that users can search using Firefox before even opening up the browser, directly from the sidebar.
Like all other modern versions of Firefox (and every other major browser) Firefox Metro for Windows 8 also supports tabbed browsing.
It does it in a similar way to the preloaded Internet Explorer 10 browser; swiping down from the top of the screen reveals the open tabs with a preview of each tab.
Mozilla said it would continue to add features, work out the bugs and integrate it more tightly with Windows 8 in the coming weeks.
