In partial reply to myself I found this page:
Which worked fairly well, however users are still able to over-ride
these settings. I am really hoping for a way to make the homepage of
my choice immutable.
Is there any documentation that anyone is aware of anywhere about what
kinds of things one can do with the file /etc/firefox/pref/firefox.js
Your ideas are appreciated.
