How do I switch from the "Rapid Release Cycle" channel to the "Extended Support Release" channel

The Firefox ESR version updates at the same time every six weeks as regular Firefox releases (last year from 10.0.2 till 10.0.12).
With Firefox ESR you only get some security updates that are back ported and no changes with respect to the user interface and adding new features.
