IBM Bob Sutor, Vice President of Open Source and Linux at IBM confirmed on his blog that the entire IBM company is moving to Firefox as its default browser. Though it seems like various users in the company have been able to use Firefox for quite some time, it looks like now they're going to be encouraging everyone to use it, and all new computers will be provisioned with Firefox as the default. Sutor has plenty of glowing praise for the open source browser in his blog post.

Mozilla Firefox has almost 6 year with us now, but there are one deadly sin committed by Mozilla they hasn't release an official Group Policy Objects extension to install and control Firefox in an active directory environment, denying the grow of Firefox at the corporate level.

Don't get me wrong, I know outside there is one tool for accomplish this, but I also know that we would like an OFFICIAL extension, no someone hack.

The route for Firefox in the enterprise world would be really easy if Mozilla decide to create something like this for Firefox 4

That's just a missing feature. Not a deadly sin. If you want it urgently, help prioritize development by paying for it.

Should be good enough. Other option is reg hacks pushed out by GPO or login script.
