I am really starting to like Opera. REALLY starting to like the
ability to globally config stuff. In fact I may not go back to FF.
Here's what I've added to the
/etc/opera6.fixed file so far:
; Put any settings here that are not overridable by users
#always start at home page
#set printer to user Letter Size rather than A4
#customize Save settings
#disable bit torrent
[Clear Private Data Dialog]
#another way to clear cache?
Empty On Exit=1
#customizations I haven't tried yet
#Custom Bookmark Merge File=
The last customization I haven't tried yet, but I am really excited by
the idea of being able to source a bookmarks file globally and have it
work for all users. This would be a real boon for our librarian who
could just edit a list flat file and have all of her website/learning
recommendations immediately available to all kids.
Plus there's a kiosk mode which I haven't explored yet. Does firefox
have anything similar to this global config file? It's really
