Assuming you know all the passwords (or are going to
change them after the set-up):

scp -r ~/.mozilla user@target:.



Cheers,

Well, you seem to have more than one machine "With out
me having to go to every computer to change there defaut
settings to the companyies home page" ... I assume you're
NOT using NIS or NIS+ since you admittedly don't know
much about Linux. scp works like cp, just allows you to
copy stuff from one machine to another over the network.

My little command suggests that you copy (as the user root
who's already set-up correctly) your firefox/mozilla settings
to the other machines.

To learn more/understand better, read
man scp


Cheers,
Tink
