modify basic firefox setup

#1 Post by old_guy » Wed Aug 08, 2018 9:47 am

How would one modify the basic firefox setup that would be used for all new users on a new snapshot? If I copied my .mozilla to /etc/skel, would that cause some conflict with each user having the same xxx.default folder in their .mozilla directory?

Update

I found that I can add/change bookmarks in:
/opt/firefox/distribution/distribution.ini

Still looking/poking around.

I think user profiles are portable, not tied to a specific user name so I don't see a problem.
