This seem to be the file we need to change. I added a new tool
update-iceweasel-homepage in debian-edu-config svn, diverting this
file to /etc/iceweasel/browserconfig.properties and adding the
homepage URL there, and cfengine rules to configure it during

Tried both, and neither did what I want. They only take effect the
first time firefox is started (or after an upgrade), while I want to
change the default every time firefox start.

Yes, thought it should really be an URL and not only a server address.
Schools are going to want to specify full URLs to the school home
page, and not all schools want to point to a toplevel page.

Is there some way to store a URL in that field? The documentation I
find specify that the www-server DHCP option need to be a host
IP/name, and not an URL.
