Nowhere in the announcement did I see a link to some install instructions for administrators. Will this ever be addressed? Most individuals who would want FF already have it on their PC. Wouldn't you guys want admins to deploy it in businesses now?

How do I install it on 50 PCs? Into a specific folder, along with some extensions, custom bookmarks, and pre-configured for all users?

Please start considering the needs of administrators who would like to test FF, but who cannot install it manually on all PCs.

Can the app folder just be copied to another machine into some folder and work?

How can a default profile be pre-configured? Which files need to be edited? What has to be edited? Where can we use environment variables (%USERNAME%, %APPDATA%, etc.), and special folders (Desktop etc.)
