Hi I have about 100 network users running FF 47 on OSX 10.6.8. I want to script changes in each user's Profile to set the home page, a particular set of search providers with one chosen as the default, and install / configure / activate several add-ons. I want to do this without changing any of their existing bookmarks, cookies, stored logins, history, etc.

Which files, or which bits of config.js, or what-have-you do I need to look at ?

Cheers, Aunty

Hi Aunty, I do not use Mac s and am not the best person to attempt an answer, but no on else has answered.

It is probably more usual to configure Firefox when deploying it, furthermore such deployments may use ESR instead of the standard Release.

I imagine your script method would do much the same as would be done manually if making these changes in a profile.

There are prefs.js & optionally the useful user.js files and the mozilla.cfg file mentioned in the linked articles, but Firefox does not use a config.js file in the profile.
