    Firefox bookmarks and remastersys

    I want to create re-spin of Ubuntu and want to include bookmarks from Firefox when the live medium is booted up. I will be using remastersys to create the live Cd, How do i get bookmarks to stay when the ISO is created in remastersys? And will the bookmarks stay if the distro is installed to the hard disk?

    copy and paste ".mozilla" folder from your home folder to /etc/skel with root privileges. Create distro using remastersys. You are done

    note that I *think* all the passwords/etc saved in FF will be copied over as well, you might want to be careful if that is the case.
