Google provides a different key to differentiate installed copies of Google Chrome (standard or "Google Chrome for Work") in this file:

"/Applications/Google Chrome.app/Contents/Info.plist"

Google Chrome:
<key>KSBrandID</key>
<string>GGRM</string>

Google Chrome for Work:
<key>KSBrandID</key>
<string>GGRO</string>

Is there such an identifier on Firefox vs Firefox ESR?

Thanks, Don

Although it REALLY would be a good idea for the Mozilla community to provide a key in an XML file that we can pull the criteria from, ala Google Chrome. :)

Note that there is also platform.ini apart from application.ini that has some data.

Thanks for the response @cor-el!

Where can I submit a feature request, to get "Firefox ESR" or "Firefox Mainline" into an XML file for solutions like Casper/SCCM to gather during inventory collection?

TIA, Don
