Setting a Default Home Page in Firefox or Chrome

We have a school network using Windows Server 2008 R2 and clients running Windows 7 Pro. I know I can use Group Policy to set the default home page for all users when opening Internet Explorer but is there a way to do the same thing using Firefox or Google Chrome?

Thank you!

Robert

Download Firefox adm template from below

Hi.

The aforementioned adm template does not apply to firefox. It only applies to frontmotions CE-edition of firefox. Neverthelesse, it is recommendable to use that CE version. The version is the normal firefox with GPO awareness added. It comes with a different desktop shortcut icon, but the rest is the same.

Link: http://www.frontmotion.com/FMFirefoxCE/download_fmfirefoxce.htm - see the correct adm at the bottom.

We had other issues come up on the server this weekend and I did not get a chance to work on this. I will provide feedback as soon as I can.

SO I downloaded the installer to a network share. Does this mean I have to go to each individual client and run this installer and then configure the home page?

I must be missing something because I still can't seem to get there.
