I am trying to figure out how to deploy a set of Firefox defaults (some changeable some not) to a series of Ubuntu Desktops. The machines are running Natty and Firefox 6. I would like to install this set of defaults as a .deb package ideally.
I thought I would start small and set the default homepage using one of the config files but so far I can't get firefox to acknowledge any of my changes regardless of where I put them. My basic test has been this:
And so far I have put that line in:
/etc/firefox/syspref.js /usr/lib/firefox-6.0/defaults/pref/vendor.js ~/.mozilla/firefox/whatever.default/prefs.js ~/.mozilla/firefox/whatever.default/user.js /usr/share/xul-ext/ubufox/defaults/preferences/000system.js
I quit Firefox, make the change in the file and then log out and log in and start FF again. Every one of these has been unsuccessful.
Keeping in mind that the default homepage is only the first of about a dozen settings I need to customize, how can I get Firefox to use the settings I am adding?
