Our users are normally not allowed to install any programs since their user accounts do not have administrative rights to their pc's. Has this been a feature in FireFox before?

We noticed that one user was able to simply download firefox, run the installation setup, and the setup would default to install firefox under their local desktop profile instead of the usual c:\Program Files folder. ie. c:\Documents and Settings\userid\Local Settings\Application Data\Mozilla Firefox\

Is there a way to prevent this from happening? We do not want to allow our users to be able to install any programs without our knowledge.
