i'm attaching a script that i have a link to on my root Desktop.
i usually change what ever i need to change inside user Sandbox
(master template user)
and then i open it's setting folder "/home/sandbox" in konqueror (i use KDE)
and drag & drop the ".mozilla" folder onto the desktop icon of the
script i just included
it copies all the setting of this Sandbox user to all other students

it's good for coping the entire KDE settings, OpenOffice, Opera...

that's one way. another one i mentioned at the beginning of the thread:
have a single configuration in the main firefox folder for all users.
