Description

We would like to know the percentage of users using a limited user account vs those using an administrative account.

This information could help with decisions like requiring Firefox to be installed into Program files (since it is more secure).

My hesitation in doing this task is that the sample set of users who have telemetry reporting enabled on Nightly may not be representative of Firefox users in general. Please let me know if you agree rs and if so I'll mark this as resolved/invalid.

Brian, is this still relevant?  I think folks on the metrics team had done some studies showing that users with telemetry reporting enabled were sufficiently representative of users in general, but that might have only been valid for the release channel.

In that case it is still relevant, but it is not high priority.
