Ya, I remember you mention this on another posting and I thought of doing that 
(second option). But, I would need to keep the cache in tack for each 
account. Or, maybe clear out the cache for the Sandbox user and let everyone 
start from scratch. I could use it in the /etc/skel area so that new users 
would be setup properly.

I already got a script but go ahead and send me yours. I'll take a look at it.

BTW, I found an addon called Menu Editor that lets you hide certain menu on 
Firefox and I want to use it to prevent people from using the "clear private 
data" function in Firefox.
