There's no central tool for configuring all these things.  However, you 
can use sabayon to customize the menu system.  To configure the desktop 
icons and Firefox, login as user, create the desktop icons you want, and 
add the extensions for Firefox, etc.  Then logout, login as root, and 
copy all the files and directories, including and especially the hidden 
ones, of that user, to /etc/skel.  Any new users will get all those 
files, directories, and their settings.  If you later want to add icons 
to existing users' desktops, login on the console as root and you should 
have an icon on the desktop for copying things to all user's desktops. 
If you do that, make sure you update /etc/skel with that addition so any 
subsequently created users will also get those new icons.
