Locking down Firefox on Ubuntu
Can anyone offer some help on locking down Firefox on Ubuntu. I want to force a particular proxy, homepage and not allow bookmarks. I followed a Windows guide and ended up with a Mozilla.cfg file, under Windows this file is placed where the .exe lives but in Ubuntu the binary is in /usr/bin and the prefs files are in .mozilla and I'm not sure where to place the file and if it works in *nix.

Re: Locking down Firefox on Ubuntu
I found that for locking the proxy and homepage setting you need to edit a mozilla.txt file to read something like:
lockPref("network.proxy.no_proxies_on", "localhost, 127.0.0.1, 10.40.0.0/8");
then convert the file to byteshift 13 at http://www.alain.knaff.lu/%7Eaknaff/...gi/byteshf.cgi
rename the mozilla.cfg file to firefox.cfg and copy it to /usr/lib/firefox
