should be possible yes, building a firefox extention that changes a few things shouldn't be to hard i think...
but probably it should be part of a platform (client) installer.. for example a 'native os service' that runs at startup pulls some info of the hda like shares (and aplications settings and installs them to the client... that would be a far better way to do thingst than to just distribute a whole buch of hack's tweaks and settings via plug ins for an even greater bunch of aplications...
if that is the case the whole issue should be upscaled to a new feature requests or possibly a wiki item so people can be drawn to implement sutch.
