I've been watching this thread (looking for the same answer as Mel).

I would like to try your suggestion. Just need a little clarification.

* I Understand adding the line to the .bashrc file.

...then you loose me ! <smile>.....

You say to push the edited .bashrc file to all users, how ? - I'm lost
with the Über-cool tools part.
* I do not have a " /opt/ltsp/k21ltsp/scripts/ " folder.... the
closest I can find is /opt/ltsp/scripts/ - and inside the scripts
folder are two files;

Thanks for your time & help,

In /etc/skel, edit the .bashrc file to add near the end:

cp -f <source>/prefs.js ~/.mozilla/firefox/default*/prefs.js

Now push this to every existing user using the uber-cool tools
in /opt/ltsp/k21ltsp/scripts/

The prefs.js file will need to be very non-user specific (i.e. quite
generic). So now every time anyone logs in or opens a bash shell,
firefox will get reset to what you want.
