Where is the URL for the Homepage stored?

I modified my kiosk.iso a lot and don't want start with a new iso from the wizard -- i didn't find who the url for the homepage is stored. It is not in the pref.js . Any hint from the admins?

Kind regards,

homepage and few other important firefox options (like forced Incognito mode) are stored in encrypted file so nobody can change them :)
you may remaster your ISO and delete 003-settings.xzm/usr/lib/firefox-$ver/defaults/pref/pklock-settings.js.
after that you should be able to use prefs.js as normal.

btw: did you get my email with a query about your printing details? i have started working on this feature already and need these details to move on.
