Why not allow users to do their own work, via an interesting and 
well-designed Intranet news page that offers, amongst other goodies, an 
easy link to the Mozilla web updater, at those times when your staff 
think it's wise that an update be deployed, like now (i.e., avoid crying 
wolf with constant reminders to update every time an update is 
available)?  Gives users a sense of control in their own destiny, and 
over time aids in the user community education effort.  Not foolproof, 
but a soft solution, and when your staff needs to pull someone out of 
trouble, they can use the Intranet page themselves, to show the user 
what to do -- no magical hocus-pocus from the user's POV, instead the 
user gets a better understanding of his or her own responsibility as a 
PC and web user.
