How does Firefox ESR work exactly?

Hi everybody,

My context is :
- All computers work with Windows XP or 7 and IE (8 for Win XP and 10 for Win 7).
- We have an application who can only works with Firefox.
- It’s use HTML5.
- Installing Firefox is strictly forbidden

So I would like to know if Firefox portable may be the solution.
What is the way to make it possible?

- Firefox Portable ESR must be only use by this application and no other.
- No Firefox file’s or .exe’s must be appears in directory

Thanks for you response.

Same As Regular Firefox

Think of Firefox ESR as Firefox pegged to an older version longer. There's no real difference in normal end-user use. Firefox ESR is designed so larger organizations (corporations/universities) can have time to verify their web apps against a specific browser engine (Gecko inside Firefox) before releasing it. So, whereas regular Firefox is updated every 6 weeks and gets security updates and new features, Firefox ESR only gets security updates every 6 weeks and then gets the features all at once every 8 releases.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
