Maintaing Firefox preferences for all users across updates
To set preferences (the web proxy) for all users on all terminal server, I place a file in </usr/lib/firefox-1.0.7/defaults/pref>. However, every time a security update comes out, the version number changes, so the new Firefox doesn't see the preferences in the previous directory. Then, users cannot connect to the Internet because of the firewall. So, is there a clean, automated way to maintain preferences for all users across Firefox updates?
We are using Fedora Core 4.
