I am looking for people with experience deploying and securing Firefox in a corporate enviroment. I have looked into various ADM/ADMX methods with startup scripts and either I can't get these working or they are rather flakey. I have read a little on Firefox ESR and this looks interesting.

If it helps, I am looking to install and secure Firefox on the users Windows 7 clients. Our Active Directory is currently running in Windows 2003 mode.

I want to know what others do so I can choose where to focus my efforts.

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Please expand a little on what you would like to secure in detail. Mean whilst, look at the following freeware: Frontmotion Firefox in the so called community edition. It's simple and it works. We use it since version 1.5 or so.

I have finally secured my Firefox deployment using the add on CCK2. This add on produces a zip file that can then be extracted to the Firefox directory. The add on does not need to be installed to lock Firefox down, it only need to be installed in order to create the package.
