We have 50 PC's spread out in the state and we are currently using IE and using content adviser to only allow these PC's to access 7 websites.  We would like to make the move to Firefox.

Can we do it?

What add on will work best for us?

Is there an add on that we can remote manage it from a single location?

firefox doesn't have anything like that built in.
There are a few extensions/plug-ins but they aren't very hard to get around so may not really suit your needs. These extensions cannot be centrally managed so may not meet your criteria anyway.

Are the users admins on their PCs?

You may have to consider internet level based control, where a firewall or external webfilter is in control of traffic from all the sites.
these can be a little expensive though, so let us know if you're willing to pay for this service or not.
