Ah, that opens up some possibilities. Now to somehow counter the deployment,
and the general FUD in Sweden regarding FF and there being more exploits and
stuff for it than compared to IE.. 
 
Note: I'm not, and don't want to, starting a flamewar or something.

I can't count on my users to keep Mozilla/Firefox up-to-date, whenever an
exploit for it is discovered. 

Besides the IE merges fine with respect to forced settings etc in the AD,
compared to the opensource alternatives, at least as far as I know. Unless
somebody has made some sort of ADM-template for Moz/FF to be deployed over
AD/GPO and where settings can be set?
