Normandy can remotely change the functionality and behavior and
preferences of Firefox installations, though. It can silently install
extensions which may not be listed at about:addons. I agree that is not
remote root access (not immediately, anyway), but the fact that such a
powerful remotely controllable feature is enabled by default, without
the user asked for explicit opt-in, is still very troubling from my
perspective. And so is your response, I might add.
