RE: IE is just as safe as FireFox

Can the Firefox settings be controlled centrally?
Yes, and more flexible than IE versions zoo at user computers. Download
a Firefox ZIP (not Firefox_Setup_1.0.exe but Firefox 1.0.zip), unpack it
to R/O share on file server, edit JS configuration files in
.\defaults\pref and .\greprefs, then create a shortcut to firefox.exe on
user desktops. To change FF settings, edit JS configs again. Voila!

Can the executable reside on the workstation with the settings stored on the network?  In an ideal world, you'd be able 
to control the settings via Group Policy (which is how you do it with IE).  I'm not sure your method is any more 
flexible than using Group Policy to be honest.
