Well, it's a step in the right direction. But FF has already gone a fair ways down the road of being actively antithetical to corporate use. As an admin, what I keep running into is Firefox going way out of its way to "empower the end user". That might be great for home users. But for corporate use, they need to be empowering the computer and network owners and admins, not the end user employees.
Case in point, transparently adding an extension like adblock+. The Mozilla folks have gone to quite some trouble to prevent computer vendors from being able to include extensions without the user explicitly allowing them. It also prevents the system administrator from rolling out an extension without the user clicking "OK" to allow it.
That's brain damage enough.
But to make matters worse, in many versions of FF (including 3.6) that popup fails to trigger.
This problem, and other similar "designed for home user" issues are why we standardized on Epiphany, and are migrating to Chrome rather than FF.
