Thank You for the links.
I'm looking to build new version of our catalog machines as well as
interested in this thread for our public access systems. We use Internet
Explorer currently because it integrates so well with Windows Steady State.
Is there an advantage to using Fire Fox or having both available? Our
current set up is very easy to train staff to work with because everything
is done from one interface. Wouldn't this just require both IE and Firefox
to be locked down? I'm fairly new so please forgive all my questions.

We use firefox on all our public computers.
Here are a couple projects that help lock down firefox.
This is what we currently do to lock the proxy settings.
Create new perfs file file
C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\greprefs\AAlocal-settings.js
// SYNTAX HINTS: dashes are delimiters. Use underscores instead.
// The first character after a period must be alphabetic.
Create new config file
C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\mozilla.cfg
//BEGIN CE Prefs
This should survive an upgrade.
Tested upgrading from 1.5.11 to 1.5.12 and 1.5.12 to 2.0.6 and it
Create a shortcut to C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\mozilla.cfg
on the exec desktop.
