Does anyone know if there is documentation on Netscape7 on how to do customizations, e.g. for coporate installs - LDAP configs, proxy configs, pre-loaded digital certificates, corporate bookmark (preferably folder of bookmarks) added to existing bookmarks, different default preferences (for corporate standard), Corporate theme (if we spent the time to make one), pre-loaded .xpi's (like ad-blocking, themes, etc.) - all to be applied after a migration from netscape 6.x or less (mostly less, like 4.79)?
