Choosing a Firefox update channel
We currently offer two paths for Firefox updates: rapid release and Extended Support Release (ESR).
In addition to different update cycles, the ESR currently has access to additional policies that are not available on rapid release.

We're investigating making those policies available if you are connected to an Active Directory server.
We recommend using the rapid release if you can, but understand that there are reasons to use the ESR, particularly around testing of internal applications and policy support.
