Re: [K12OSN] Firefox Default Home Page

I made all the students' bookmarks.html and prefs.js symlinks to the teacher's files, set the owner to be root and read-only for everyone else, which allowed the teacher to add bookmarks, etc., for everyone. This was a year or two ago, but I don't recall there being any problems, and the teachers sure liked it.

Would it be possible to create a symbolic link for that file in the skel and then every user that gets the skel will get the symbolic link pointing to a file that you can edit as needed to set things how you want them.
 Set the actual file that the link points to to read only so they can't change it.

I know we have batted this topic around before, but I'm really needing to
find an final solution.

In my lab it is really important that we lock the Firefox home page so that
we can supply links to the services of our library for our students. So far
my understanding is that I can create a skel file that would set the
beginning preference for users but then they can change them after that.

Would a cron task correct any user change?

Is there any way we can create a lockable file that all users point to for
this information?
