Sure, it is me.

When the FF ESR was released for the first time ( ver 10 ), Kyle was struggling with ways how to distinguish Normal FF and ESR Firefox, as not possible or obvious from binaries.

After my investigation I had realized the difference is in config files,
telling to Firefox what update channel it should follow.

So finally Kyle used that config to detect, if user is using normal or ESR Firefox.

The config file pathname or content may possibly changed or whatever,
but after long time current SUMO version suddenly wanted me to update my FF ESR 17.0.2 ( current ) to FF 18.
