Upgrade profiles in Enterprise Environment

Hello, As of Firefox 76 there is a new user profile.

For different customers in VMWare /Citrix environments I need to upgrade Firefox from an ESR release to the latest one., but I cannot find a simple solution to upgrade profiles to the new one in bulk.

I found articles about profile managers in combination with or without sync, but that is an option. Customers are within government and public health sector. Data to be sent into the cloud is therefor not an option.

How can I : 1. Have a simple solution to upgrade profiles in bulk.

OR 2. Have an option where users can use the old profile to continue working.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Regards, Joe

Profiles should be upgraded automatically, you shouldn't need to do anything.

But if the Firefox versions are in different directories, you might have to set

MOZ_LEGACY_PROFILES to 1 in the environment

or use the LegacyProfiles policy:
