    There is an extension called menu editor. Firefox settings for the most part are not in the registry the are in appdata in the users profile.

    Do you think you can give me the idea of the location bar? (C:\Users\Owner\Appdata) That sort of thing. I would do it right now, but I only have a certain amount of time on the computer I have Firefox on. So just in case I don't get it right I could have a future reference to look at so I make sure I do it right.

    Oh... It's an add-on? Is there any other way?

    AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<random>. default

    Maybe if you got some sort of sqlite browser/editor you may be able to hack it. Can you not the set the profile up how you like (including the extension) and copy to each users profile via gpp?

    To remove Set As Desktop Background... from the context menu you will need to create a text file called userChrome.css containing the text shown below.

    Code:
    /*
     * Do not remove the @namespace line -- it's required for correct functioning
     */
    @namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* set default namespace to XUL */
    
    #context-setDesktopBackground { visibility: collapse !important; }
    The CSS file should be copied to either:

    Code:
    %AppData%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<random>.default\chrome
    or

    Code:
    %ProgramFiles(x86)%\Mozilla Firefox\browser\defaults\profile\chrome
    Placing userChrome.css in the latter folder will only affect new profiles, not existing.

    Before (Left) / After (Right)
