We're looking to convert our install base of various consumer versions to ESR (for windows machines only currently) An SCCM report shows Firefox having various installation paths on our devices C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Mozilla Firefox\ C:\Documents and Settings\%USERID%\Local Settings\Application Data\Mozilla Firefox\ C:\Users\%USERID%\AppData\Local\Mozilla Firefox\ C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox %VERSION_Number%\ C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\ C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\ To name a few

We’d like our ESR install script (delivered thru SCCM) to do a few things, - install ESR - copy any current FF favorites/user settings/etc to the ESR version - have a post-installation item to remove all instances/shortcuts/etc of FF that do not equal ESR 10 - limit required user interaction for install/cleanup

Wondering if anyone’s gone thru something like this, or has any comments on this approach and maybe some script ideas or pitfalls to watch out for?

Thanks!
