Managing Firefox Updates

This article is for IT Admins who want to configure Firefox on their organization's computers.

We recommend keeping automatic updates enabled for all Firefox deployments to ensure that the latest security patches are applied and all features are available, but your specific environment may prevent automatic updates.

Both Firefox Rapid Release and Firefox Extended Support Release can both be used in your Enterprise environments. If you're concerned about frequent large updates, we recommend checking out Choosing a Firefox update channel to learn more about Firefox Extended Support Release.
