HOWTO: Setting Firefox's Global Settings

We use a proxy server in our school and having to put the network information into Firefox for each user would be a nightmare!

Step 1
Locate the file /usr/share/firefox/greprefs/all.js and open. In the terminal you can type:

sudo gedit /usr/share/firefox/greprefs/all.js


This will open the firefox preferences file in the terminal.


Step 2
Locate the string "proxy.type" using the find function (CTRL+F) and change the following appropreately:

pref("network.proxy.type", 1);
pref("network.proxy.ftp", "YourIPAddressToProxy");
pref("network.proxy.ftp_port", 8080);
pref("network.proxy.gopher", "YourIPAddressToProxy");
pref("network.proxy.gopher_port", 8080);
pref("network.proxy.http", "YourIPAddressToProxy");
pref("network.proxy.http_port", 0);
pref("network.proxy.ssl", "YourIPAddressToProxy");
pref("network.proxy.ssl_port", 0);
pref("network.proxy.socks", "YourIPAddressToSocks");
pref("network.proxy.socks_port", 0);
pref("network.proxy.socks_version", 5);
pref("network.proxy.socks_remote_dns", false);
pref("network.proxy.no_proxies_on", "localhost, 127.0.0.1, .yourlocal.domains");


Step 3
It's also possible to setup the global default homepage*, this time we edit /etc/firefox/pref/firefox.js. In the terminal type:


sudo gedit /etc/firefox/pref/firefox.js

Add the following lines:


//Setup Home...
pref("browser.startup.homepage", "http://www.google.com");
pref("browser.startup.homepage_reset", "http://www.google.com");

Changing the urls appropreately. Save the file(s) and reboot.

*This step might not work as expected in Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon (7.10) It's a known bug: Bug Report

I rarely drop comments, however i did a few searching and wound up here "HOWTO: Setting Firefox's Global Settings".
And I do have 2 questions for you if it's allright. Is it only me or does it look as if like some of these responses look like written by brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are writing at additional social sites, I'd like to follow everything new you have to post.
Could you make a list of the complete urls of all your public sites
like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement?

My blog has a lot of completely unique content I've either authored myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission. Do you know any methods to help prevent content from being ripped off? I'd truly appreciate it.

like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I'm completely overwhelmed .. Any tips? Bless you!
