So I have Firefox ESR installed, and I want to change it to the "release" channel. Is there a way to do that or I have to reinstall?
I've tried changing app.update.channel in about:config to 'release', and that didn't seem to do it.

The answer by DragoonHP is not entirelly correct. Not every ESR version can be simply converted to a release version. As of Firefox ESR 24.5.0, just changing the release channel does not bring new updates. It seems also that Firefox ESR is a completely different compilation and the release version might have trouble with your ESR profile (See this thread Can I convert an existing Firefox installation to ESR without a re-install?)
I recommended to copy the main profile files and re-install Firefox.
