Re: [K12OSN] Firefox Default Home Page



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.

:)
