As a reminder, Telemetry is currently enabled-by-default on Nightly and Aurora. Telemetry is opt-in on Beta and Release. I would suggest that the type of information that you are looking to collect may be skewed by the more technical population if you are to rely on data from Nightly and Aurora. Metrics should be able to help you determine if this is true.
