Move firefox profile automatic
On my company I'm working on a replacement of 100 virtual Windows machines. The users on the old virtual machines are complaining about the FireFox profile is overwriting the max profile size of the windows profile... Some users have moved the FF profile to a different location and has a size near 300MB. On the new virtuals I really want to move the FF profile automatically on startup or something. So users don't have the problem with the profile size. Is there any way to do this? Maybe with a startup of logon script? Or a policy setting.
I hope someone can help me with this.

There are a few known alternatives that is part of the ESR community knowledge:
- http://benjamin.smedbergs.us/release-repackager/ Looks pretty good, but please test it on the virtual environment first as you did not specify what virtual machine manager you were using.
