[K12OSN] Configuring Workstations Views and Defaults

Many, if not all, of these customization settings are in hidden files in the user's home directory.  I can't speak for Firefox, but with Mozilla there is a ~/.mozilla directory which, a few subdirectories into it, you will find a bookmarks.html file.  Replace that with your pre-prepared default bookmarks file.  I'm not sure where the homepage selection is kept, but I'd expect to find it somewhere in the .mozilla directory tree.

Same thing probably goes for all other defaults you want to set.  For your desktop, look for ~./gnome or something similar (maybe somebody on the list could tell you exactly, because I don't use Gnome).
