Firefox config files
I've been playing around with firefox and I'm ~75%* sure I've got it all set up how I want it.
I'm using the MSI from here and CCK to create the settings files, but I want to know if it's just a case of pushing out the various files through GPO or whether I should make a new MSI that has them.
*What should I actually be checking for? The homepage is set, the proxy is working, the settings are blocked...

I didn't bother with FF, I didn't like the lack of GPO or proper MSI, so I pushed Chrome out as the alternative (even though I use FF myself).
That said, similar options I had to tie down in Chrome were blocking extensions, allowing plugins & popups on certain sites (e.g. our ECDL tests) and blocking file browsing so users couldn't start navigating file shares - file security would have stopped them, but belt and braces, y'know.
I also tested it to death with a certain teacher in a certain room for two or three months to make sure it was absolutely locked down as intended. I've had fallout from parents in the past when filtering has failed so I am paranoid about programs that access the web.

I just realised I forgot to include Adblock Plus... And a British dictionary. [Stupid Americanisms...]
Plus, while I can't download add-ons through the add-on menu, I can download them direct from Mozilla.
Back to testing... after lunch.
